David Elliot Illustration Workshop for Adults

About the event

Join us for this special workshop with Award-winning writer-illustrator David Elliot.
Over many years working with images David Elliot has developed a range of techniques to access his imagination and keep himself motivated to create fresh new work. In this workshop he shares his experiences and hopes to help you think imaginatively about your approach to subject matter and materials.

He has an ongoing special relationship with the Ashburton Art Gallery.
