The Great Clawback!

Friday 11th December 8-10pm

The final Stirchley Tapestry workshop of 2020 is Friday 11th December!

Join us for an evening of thinking and drawing about all the amazing research and ideas around social and ecological sustainability that are happening right now across the planet!

The Great Clawback is the antithesis to “And So It Was Foretold...” our apocalyptic, doom-filled drawing workshop extravaganza.

Unlike, “And So It Was Foretold...” The Great Clawback celebrates the scientific and cultural projects happening right now that are working to save the planet and its ecosystems!

All you will need to take part is a brush, some black ink and some paper. These are fun and relaxed workshops for beginners. No artistic experience needed! There are no right or wrong answers, it’s all about learning and making things together as a community.
