This relaxed drawing class celebrated the transition from summer to autumn, and explored different ways of drawing plants and botanicals.

Led by Herfa Thompson, we used a range of drawing tools, such as pencils and found natural objects, to experiment with different drawing styles.

Drink & draw is The Tetley’s regular series of live drawing events for adults, inviting you to get creative in a relaxed, sociable atmosphere.

About the artist

Herfa Thompson is a London-born artist, currently based in Leeds. She studied Sculpture and Environmental Art at The Glasgow School of Art. Having grown up in Southern Africa, Thompson experienced frustration that her return to the UK was not made to feel like a return home. Her work explores a world where brown bodies are peacefully and joyfully existing, referencing nostalgic memories of her time in Africa and Martinique, as well as exploring the relationship between humans and bodies of water.
