DiningRoomDrawingClub were special guests on October’s SLAM Fridays special Big Draw Art Tour in Bankside. We dusted off our HBs and give our iphones a well-earned rest for this special SLAM Fridays event, drawing all the way accross Bankside, in and out of pubs and galleries.
‘THE BIG DRAW ART TOUR’
Friday 25 July 2014
On Friday night at 6.30 artist Michelle Avison will open the door to her magical printmaking studio, SLAUGHTERHAUS, as part of SLAM Last Friday. A lovely, intimate space, home to three ancient printing presses, and usually accessible only to studio members, Michelle will invite you to spend some time in the studio and its pretty Victorian yard outside.
Bring a sketchbook, chat, draw a bit, sip a summer cocktail, and join in the round-table discussion about the part drawing plays in printmaking, led by Michelle, and Janie Skuse of the Dining Room Drawing Club, and with particular reference to Michelle's work.
