I shall be running a ‘hands on’ workshop ‘Need to Touch’ at the British Museum from 6pm (to 8.45pm) on Friday 8 June as part of the British Museum’s major Rodin exhibition- a Late night event curated by UAL Students
Indulge your senses by drawing direct from those very ancient Greek nude torsos that influenced Rodin’s approach to creativity. Then, ‘drawing on’ memory and imagination by removing sight (blindfolded) we will create maquettes in clay from touch. Annabel will share family anecdotes written by her great uncle, Anthony Ludovici, who in 1906 became Rodin’s trusted private secretary. Ludovici’s personal reminiscences while living with the Rodins at Meudon, observing the Master’s daily behaviour and seeing him at work gives a rare insight and privileged understanding to Rodin’s opinion on sculpture and his personal methodologies.
Unleash your imagination by getting your creative hands dirty. Open to all abilities/disabilities. No previous experience necessary. All materials supplied. Just drop-in!
