The session will be led Kate Noble from the Fitzwilliam Education team and Sheila Ceccarelli & Paula Briggs, co-founders of AccessArt.

On: Wednesday 7th November and repeated on Saturday 10th November 2018

The session will start with a guided tour of the exhibition Virginia Woolf: An exhibition inspired by her writings, accompanied by hands-on sketchbook and drawing exercises in the gallery inspired by the work of 20th century and contemporary woman artists.

This will be followed by a creative session in the studio, looking at how we might use expressive mark making and asemic writing (invented text), to explore our own creativity and express ourselves using fine art processes.
