Popular cartoonist Ruby Elliott leads a fun and informative illustration workshop
Using insights from her own artistic process, Ruby will demonstrate how to use your own emotional landscape as a basis for cartoons, how to give your work a strong, personal voice, and how to utilise humour to pinpoint lightness within dark subject matter.
This laidback workshop is all about banishing perfectionism and inhibitions and celebrating the process of drawing as a therapeutic tool for all, regardless of technical ability…it’s the perfect antidote to the January blues!
