Course: Ways of Seeing, Drawing, and Making

Part of Space Shifters

Get close to the ideas behind the intriguing artworks of Space Shifters, and their relation to Hayward Gallery’s spaces, in a four-week visual arts course.

Through exploratory drawing, photography and model making, you will begin with close observation using a structured approach to drawing and image making, move on to layered interpretative works, and finish with small-scale three-dimensional constructions. This is an opportunity for artists, designers and makers of all abilities who are curious about the direction their work might take when inspired by the spaces, materials, and techniques found in Space Shifters.

Group and individual discussion will take place throughout the sessions, which are facilitated by architect Julia Dwyer and artist Sue Ridge.

Julia Dwyer has designed educational, social and domestic spaces and collaborates with artists and designers on a variety of projects. She teaches, writes and lectures in architecture, interiors and public art and is currently associate lecturer at Chelsea College of the Arts/UAL (MA Interior Spatial Design). She has written about feminist spatial practice, collective practice, place and identity and art and design in architectural education.

Sue Ridge makes sited artwork that responds to the social and physical context of place, including urban spaces, hospitals and institutions. Her artwork has been exhibited in several galleries and institutions. She teaches at University of the Arts London, where she has just completed X-Ray Archive, a commission funded by UAL Enquiry and Innovation Research
