Drawing workshop – Chafford Gorges
Saturday 17th August, 1.30 – 4.00 p.m.
Meet: Beacon Centre, Drake Road, Chafford Hundred, Grays RM16 6RW
Please note a change of location for the Drawing Workshop on Saturday 17th August, 1.30 – 4.00 p.m.
Due to a risk of wet weather and slippy pathways underfoot, we have moved the drawing location to Chafford Gorges Nature Park, and will have the use of a room at the Beacon Centre, All Saints Church, Drake Road, as a base and in case of rain.
Therefore, please meet at 1.30 p.m. in the café area of the Beacon Centre, Drake Road, Chafford Hundred, Grays RM16 6RW. There is a car park outside the Beacon Centre and it is within walking distance of Chafford Hundred railway station.
Chafford Gorges nature park offers 200 acres of green space for wildlife and people of Chafford Hundred. We will make our way down the gorges to be inspired by the wildlife, history and geology of the site.
If you have any questions or need to contact us on the day, please call Jo on 07966 431467.
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.
