Event description

Description


For adults of all ability levels.
Workshop group size is restricted to 15 maximum.
Cost includes all materials and refreshments.

Join us for an inspiring afternoon of creativity and cake and explore the Crossness Pumping Station with artist Lily German.

Following a guided tour of the site, including an archive visit to see the original site drawings, Lily will lead the group through a series of observational drawing exercises in response to the magnificent Victorian architecture and design. Participants will develop their skills using a range of different materials and techniques for drawing and mark making. All materials will be provided and you are welcome to bring a camera to document your experience.

Crossness Creative Afternoons provide a supportive and informal environment for participants to develop their creative skills and use Crossness as the inspiration for their own creative making and discovery. Tea, coffee and cakes will be served.

Artist Lily German is currently undertaking a 2-year Residency at Colfe’s School in South London. Pilgrimage and on-site field research in the form of drawing, writing, printmaking, sound recording and photography are starting points for Lily’s sculptural practice. Crossness Pumping Station and its immediate surroundings have been central to Lily’s observational research over the past year.


Since graduating in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College, Lily has exhibited in both solo and group shows in London. Most recently in July 2017 showing performing clay forms and drawing as part of S I N K at Safehouse 1, Maverick Projects. Continuing research projects include working with Crossness Engines Trust and running educational workshops alongside a research-based studio practice.
