Artists’ Workshop at Lyme Regis Museum

19 November @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

Lyme Regis Museum and artist Christine Allison are collaborating with two unique workshops. Artists of all abilities are invited to spend a day in the museum working from the museum exhibits. The museum will be closed to the general public on each of two dates, giving artists freedom to study and draw from the diverse human artefacts and pre-historic fossil and geological displays. The education room will also be available for messier work.

The theme for each day will be to find a starting point from an item in the museum collection and take that object on an inspired journey. What may begin as a fragment of china or a ladies glove or an ichthyosaur’s fossilised eye may later become a large abstract painting or a sculpture or a textile back home in your studio. The journey is the key and Christine will prompt you through each stage.

There will be a maximum of 10 places in each one-day workshop.

Date: Tuesday 19 November
10.30am-4.30pm with a break for lunch
Cost: £40 per one-day workshop
