Sketching Workshop with Pennie Lordan

During this two hour sketching workshop, you will have the opportunity to be supported to explore your surroundings and views from the arts barge with artist Pennie Lordan. Starting with creating a variety of spontaneous thumbnail sketches, you will experiment with mark-making and tone through the application of a variety of materials and go on to make one or two more considered sketches, applying this information and observation skills. All materials are provided. The workshop will be informal and supportive and is appropriate for all levels.

Disabled Access  
Due to the ‘work in progress’ state of the Arts Barge at this year’s festival, we regret that wheelchair access down to the performance space is not possible.   

Through Riverside 2019 we aim to raise interest and funds to return in 2020 with full disabled access lift and toilet facilities. 

In the meantime, the gang-planks onto the barge are wide and wheelchair users are very welcome to enjoy the deck area. Our Riverside marquee (24th - 28th July) is free and accessible to all. Accessible toilet facilities in St. George’s Field car park, will be available during all Arts Barge Riverside Festival opening hours.
