Spend a day working alongside artist Adrian Dutton looking at two major civilisations through the lens of their differing ceramic-making traditions. We look at how form and function interrelate to express attitudes towards the divine, the heroic and the beautiful, as you’re expertly guided throughout this hands-on drawing workshop.

You'll start the day with a drawing session amid the Museum's vast and stunning collection of Greek vases, looking at examples from 1000 BC up to the height of Athenian power.

In the afternoon, you'll move to the British Museum's art studios where, to deepen our grasp of the theme, we move on to making a still life painting.

This leads us perfectly onto exploring the Chinese ceramics galleries. In this final session, the group will have the gallery to itself.

All materials and refreshments are provided.
