InTouch artmaking workshop

Photo credit: Justine Trickett

Join us for an art making workshop designed specifically for blind and partially sighted visitors inspired by the Summer Exhibition 2019.

Artists Rachel Gadsden and Harry Baxter will lead this artmaking workshop specifically designed for blind and partially sighted visitors. This workshop includes an audio described and touch tour of the exhibition, followed by refreshments and art making.

These workshops are free and anyone is welcome, including those with no art experience. Materials and support from staff and volunteers are provided throughout the sessions. Refreshments are provided.

Rachel Gadsden is an internationally exhibited artist and who works across the mainstream and disability art sectors, presenting cross-cultural visual dialogues that consider the most profound notions of what it is to be human.

Harry Baxter is experienced in audio describing and running workshops for blind and partially sighted visitors and has been an artist educator at the RA since 2006. The two artists will support attendees to create using a range of materials and explore the physicality of art making, inspired by art and artists in this year’s Summer Exhibition.
