Eye to Pencil is an interdisciplinary studio, working with people to activate and express their ideas through drawing.

Guest Series

Our series of talks and workshops are given by leading professionals across different fields who draw as a part of their work and life. In the Spring our guests will be discussing drawing in relation to image & text, pedagogy, painting, fashion, and anatomy. These workshops are a unique chance to understand drawing from different disciplines - working hands on within a small group led by inspirational drawers.


Our upcoming Guest Talks and Workshops showcase how drawing plays a role across disciplines.

Thursday Evening Workshops

These weekly evening sessions are led by young emerging artists sharing their relationship to materials and drawing. Starting on 19 January and running each Thursday until 23 March (with a break on 23 Feb), we have eight young artists joining us this term, all with exciting and varied approaches to drawing. Their workshops span puppet making, textural rubbing and drawing alongside poetry, to name a few. We are very excited to welcome them all to the studio!
