I will be doing some workshops and a talk in conjuction with my upcoming exhibition at Drum Castle. Details of times and dates will be released soon here»

Woodland drawing workshop

Exhibiting artist Tansy Lee Moir leads this drawing workshop inspired by some of Drum Castle’s most impressive trees. Working in the Castle’s ancient oak wood, you will learn some of the expressive drawing methods she uses, capturing the movement and form of the trees with charcoal, conté and pastel. All materials will be provided and no experience is necessary. Will involve gentle walking on paths and some rough ground, outdoor clothing essential.

Drawing with charcoal

Exhibiting artist Tansy Lee Moir will share some of the secrets of how to use charcoal to represent light, shadow and lively line. Using her own work, trees in the grounds of Drum Castle, plus a selection of wood and other natural materials from her studio, you will learn how to compose your drawings and manipulate this versatile medium. This workshop will be mostly indoors and all materials are provided. No experience necessary.

Gallery talk

Exhibiting artist Tansy Lee Moir will share stories of her personal encounters with trees and her creative process, which is inspired by them. She has a particular interest in the ecology and history of ancient woodlands and makes regular trips to locations around Scotland to gather source material for her studio works. She will discuss the locations and artists that have inspired her work, how they relate to her studio practice and invite questions from the audience.

Fellow exhibiting artist Margaret Pitt will also be talking about her printmaking process.
