Your World in Watercolour: A Workshop with Will Knight

About Your World in Watercolour: A Workshop with Will Knight

From interpreting a 2 dimensional map, to forming a 3D massing drawing, to then adding detail with pen and depth with watercolour; this workshop offers the opportunity to record your building from above, as Knight and Sulman have; and in doing so, extend the map beyond it’s current confines; whether the new locations are in Broomhill or Ballieston; Strathbungo or Springburn.

Will studied Architecture at the Glasgow School of Art, and this training has informed his approach to understanding the dynamic relationship between people and place. He has spent the last ten years observing, recording and interpreting Glasgow’s built environment – from the celebrated work of Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson to the ubiquitous tiled tenement close; from some of the city’s cherished eateries to the scratch bakery and local newsagent. Every subject is explored through measurement and drawn by hand, elevating everyday buildings so that they are revealed afresh.

Lunch and materials supplied. If you can, please bring a phone/laptop/tablet with internet access so you can look at your building/street online.
