June’s Drink and Draw session explores the possibilities of drawing music and sounds.

Playing with ideas from dance and music theory, the session responds to dynamics, rhythm and pitch.

This will be a mixed media session, experimenting with different materials.

About

Drink & Draw is The Tetley’s regular series of live drawing events, inviting you to get creative in a relaxed, sociable atmosphere.

This event is intended for adults.

No previous experience is required, and all materials are provided.

About the artist

Herfa Thompson is a London-born artist, currently based in Leeds. She studied Sculpture and Environmental Art at The Glasgow School of Art. Having grown up in Southern Africa, Thompson experienced frustration that her return to the UK was not made to feel like a return home. Her work explores a world where brown bodies are peacefully and joyfully existing, referencing nostalgic memories of her time in Africa and Martinique, as well as exploring the relationship between humans and bodies of water.

Access

  • Drink & Draw is hosted in our Bar & Kitchen on the ground floor. There are accessible toilets on the ground floor.
