The Peninsula Artisans are a group of artist friends who came together to create a body of work for The Johnston Collection, Decorative Fine Arts Museum. Within their group of eight, they have textile and paper artists, wood workers, sculptors, print makers, knitters, embroiderers and oil painters, making pieces which vary from fabric sculpture vegetables to a hand spun and woven paper table runner which holds a hidden message. Robyn Rich has a love of painting, drawing and fabric sculpture. Samantha Menzies enjoys working with paper, plant fibres, fabrics, weave and ceramics.

This workshop will stretch and play with the perceived conventions of drawing. During this 3-hour session participants will be given the opportunity to experiment with a wide range of materials and mediums, some of which may not be considered traditional ‘drawing tools’. Participants will leave the workshop with a concertina-style booklet containing a selection of their samples from the day.
