Artist Talk - Jason Hicklin

We had a lovely evening last night with the artist and Royal Engraver Jason Hicklin.

In July 2009 Jason and the artist Daphne Warburg Astor took a journey to Tory Island eight miles off the coast of North Donegal. Each day they set off from their tents to walk the island with their sketchbooks. Jason’s response to has been a series of ten etchings and he talked us through these and his experience of the island.

As always Jason was very honest and passionate about his subject which was inspiring to everyone present and we would like to thank him for coming and for his continued support of the Bristol Drawing School.

He'll be back with us in the Autumn for another of his popular Etching from Life workshops.
