Drawing workshop – Haven Plotlands Museum
Drawing workshop – Haven Plotlands Museum TBC
Sunday 4th August, 10.00 a.m. – 12.30 p.m.
The museum is located at the Essex Wildlife Trust Langdon Nature Reserve. The Haven Plotlands Museum is a 1930s bungalow and garden that shows what life was like for resident Plotlanders before the building of Basildon New Town. The houses were originally built as holiday homes by families (mainly from London) who bought individual plots. The Haven Museum, the last remaining house, has been owned by Essex Wildlife Trust since the 1980s.
The drawing workshops are led by professional artist Jo Beal, who will provide top tips and techniques to help you reflect on and capture your experience of the locations and your personal connection to the landscape. No previous drawing experience is necessary.
These free workshops aim to inspire memories and stories about your connection to the Land of the Fanns landscape.
