Homelife Sunday No. 2 | 29 March 2020 | with Artist Julie Forrester

Handmade Experiments with Rubbings

It's time to experiment inside our special new sketchbooks with RUBBINGS! Once again, all the fun is in improvising with materials you find at home or outside. Create a colourful, leafy jungle for your Avatar to explore or a city made of different shapes and textures. Simply sharpen your pencil, place the items you find underneath a piece of paper and rub your pencil over the surface. Try pressing gently and hard, or using different colours...the golden rule is to be inventive!

Don't forget to share your creations inspired by these Sunday online workshops using #crawfordartgalleryhomelife

Here is a list of MATERIALS and EQUIPMENT used:

  • Pencil
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Coloured pencils
  • Sketchbook made from last week, another sketchbook of your own, or some A4 pieces of paper
  • Assortments of leaves and household items such as cardboard, plastic wrapping,'s up to you and your supervising adult!
