I recently led a session inspired by the drawings of Louis Bourgeois. Looking at a series of drawing of hands (10 AM is when you come to me) a grid of drawing that show the hands of Bourgeouis and her creative asistent Jerry. (her asistant for over 30 years)

In this workshop we used our own hands as a template and created a range of works using drawing, collage and stitch on hand made and recycled paper, bringing them together to creat our own grid of drawing.Drawing room 1
