Take inspiration from the Museum of London’s extraordinary metalwork collections in this unique opportunity to handle and draw a selection of noble and base metal historic objects, each selected to demonstrate a creative approach to texturing metal. The session will take place in the museum store, where Senior Curator Hazel Forsyth will introduce the objects, their context and range of techniques employed.

Where do I meet the group for the workshop?

The workshop is held at the Museum London, 150 London Wall, London EC2Y 5HN, from 1.45pm – 4pm. The nearest tube stations are Barbican (5 minutes walk) and St Paul’s (5 minutes walk).

Participants should meet at the Museum of London Welcome Desk, inside the main entrance. It will not be possible for anyone arriving late to join the group, due to the security arrangements at the museum. 

What do I need to bring with me?
