    Sketching in the sculpture gallery at Chatsworth

    Capture the beauty of Chatsworth's Sculpture Gallery during the closed season in this observational drawing workshop.


    9th March 2024 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

    Capture the beauty of figurative sculpture in Chatsworth's Sculpture Gallery through this observational drawing workshop. This gives you exclusive access to our historic sculpture collection during the closed season.

    Our experienced tutor will provide an overall structure and focus to the session, helping you to develop your own drawing abilities and interests. You will be guided through initial sketches, measuring techniques, and developing aspects of line and tone using dry media. We will emphasise how to capture the three-dimensional form, using sculptures by Albacini, Bartolini and Monti as our inspiration.

    This workshop is open to all abilities. Our tutor will be on hand to help you progress your skills, discuss and review your work as required. You are also welcome to use this session to develop your own practice using the figurative sculptures as your model.

    All materials are provided. Due to the historic environment and environmental controls in place, please do not bring any wet materials on the day, although you are welcome to bring your own sketchbook and dry materials (please note, these materials will be checked for suitability on the day).

    Saturday 10 February & Saturday 9 March | 10am–3pm

    £75 per person Tea, coffee and a graze box lunch from the Farm Shop are included
