Focuses energy and thinking on your own creative practice and thinking.  The day begins with an introduction and talk on the ideas and stimulus of #DrawingYourSpace.  

We look at inspirational artists and art works that challenge and embrace the making environment and stimulate our own relationship to material and making.  

We follow this with ‘drawing’ activities before and after lunch.


We use ideas and notions of ‘drawing’ and ‘space’ to think physically and exercise boundaries so we can reflect on our own creative spaces and thoughts.

We work with three dimensional ideas of sculptural drawing, mark making and writing  to explore our ideas.


Our experience of running these groups, consistently evidences people gaining confidence and stimulus in their artistic and creative identity.  They have time and space to return to an intrinsic place of both creativity and learning, leaving them with renewed purpose.

‘Thank you to both Sarah and Elena for providing the opportunity to take part in the Study Day.  You were excellent teachers and guides.  You combined professionalism, playfulness and a sense of care for everyone in the group.’   Participant Feedback


We have a particular interest in women only creative spaces and have dates available for both women only groups and mixed groups.

We experience different outcomes depending on the gender balance of the cohorts and are interested in how this can be explored and honoured.
