This saturday was spent at Portsmouth City Musuem in Portsmouth, where I lead a drawing workshop responding to the 'Secret Egypt' exhibition. 13 of us spent 6 hours drawing the bird sculptures, graphics and images in the collection and translating into fabulous layered papercuts. It was so amazing to see how everyone responded so differently and how very talented all the results were.
