Felix Oswald's Figures: Illustrating the Ancient World

Suitable for ages 18+

This workshop will focus on the original pen and ink illustration sheets for the plates in Felix Oswald's Index of Figures Types on Terra Sigillata. These archaeological illustrations catalogue the relief decoration of the Samian pottery collection in the University of Nottingham Museum.

Taking Oswald's work as an inspiration, the workshop will focus on creative figure drawing (animals, humans, giants, monsters and hybrid beings) and will encourage you to create your own illustrated stories.
