November 17 - November 18

What stories do clothes tell? What clues do they reveal about the wearer? This workshop will explore how the 19th century critic John Ruskin taught drawing as a way to scrutinise the world. Come and apply Ruskin’s teaching to his own clothing from the origin and endings of his life – his christening robe and clothing worn in old age. The workshop includes hands on activities where families are invited to make their own drawings of Ruskin’s clothing and tell the story of your own textile treasures with the help of an artist.

Workshops take place throughout Saturday 17 November starting every 30 minutes between 11:00am and 3:30pm and will be repeated on Sunday 18 November between 11:00am and 3:30pm.
