Taking part in a family workshop

© Roy Matthews

Get inspired by Antony Gormley and use your body as an art tool in this free drop-in art making workshop for families, part of the Big Draw Festival 2019.

Antony Gormley is known for using the body in his art, including in his large-scale installations like the Angel of the North in Gateshead, and his cast iron figures in places like Crosby Beach near Liverpool.

In this free, drop-in workshop, draw around your body and create a freestanding sculpture, then add it to our collaborative installation as we fill the room with figures. Plus, try out our drawing challenges which will encourage you to turn your body into an art tool. Can you draw what your body feels like? What can you draw by making different movements with your body?

This workshop includes a drop-in quiet zone.

Suitable for all ages.

Part of the Big Draw Festival 2019, themed Drawn to Life.
