The tutor, Gordon Dryden, ran life drawing and sculpture workshops at Leicester University through the 80’s and 90’s and ran workshops at the NSA for a number of years prior to the Covid pandemic. Since 2019 he has run regular Zoom sessions. The workshops involve some short poses followed by longer poses for the rest of the day when advice is given on a one-to-one basis, rather than by demonstrations to the whole group. The emphasis is on individuals developing technically with their own style.
