Online Workshop: Paint your Zoom Room

Thursday 14th October 2021 | 2.30pm – 4pm GMT | via Zoom

This workshop encourages participants to draw a section through the interior of their chosen room, using the same architectural drawing conventions that would have been used when the dwelling was first designed and constructed. However, this drawing will show finishes, furniture, decoration and contents; expressing the room as the lived in experience it is in 2021. The drawings you make are a record of ‘now’, marking a memory of your living rooms.

The aim of this workshop is to give participants a taster and detailed starting point for Will’s artistic process, so they can go away and complete their work and start their own future projects in this unique style with their new knowledge and tools.

This workshop will be led by Glasgow based artist Will Knight, best known for his beautifully detailed and coloured architectural scale drawings, which were featured in the GCHT Glasgow Landmarks Exhibition in 2019.

£65 / person 

(price includes 2 hour live teaching session with Will, plus watercolour paints, scale ruler, graphic drawing pen and tracing paper all delivered to your door)

Online Talk: 19th Century Retail and the Rise of the Department Store

Wednesday 8th December 2021 | 7.30pm GMT | via Zoom

Focusing on architecture, window displays, and internal design, this talk will examine how Glasgow department stores, like their Parisian counterparts, became spaces not just of spectacle, but also of manipulation and disorientation.

The Map

“I feel like a bird soaring over the city when I gaze upon Sulman’s map, every nook and cranny with every detail so exact.

I can see where I came from and where I’m at.”

Edward’s story

A DIFFERENT DIRECTION Another day at the warehouse done. He’s a clerk, so there’s always lots of paperwork to get through and it requires great attention to detail. He’s a conscientious and well-organised individual though, so he enjoys it and the satisfaction he gets when a job is done well.
