First, keep your distance. For this we had extra large sheets of paper, four foot drawing sticks and an object to draw whilst thinking where to place it on the paper, along with multiple repeats of it.
The second exercise was to plan out compositions using just three circles and three diagonals.
The final exercise was to select any items from a large collection of objects provided and create our own still lifes - thinking creatively and remembering the lessons of exercises one and two.
It was a really inspiring workshop which resulted in a great variety of work and pushed us out of our comfort zones. Many thanks to Frances, who has sent us all a message (click here).
