Opportunity for PGR students within the College of Arts and Law – Technical Drawing Classes, Eton Myers Collection

A very exciting and unique opportunity is available for PGR students within the College of Arts and Law!

Using the ancient Egyptian pottery from the Eton Myers Collection, on loan to the University of Birmingham from Eton College, doctoral candidate Yannis Nakas (an experienced archaeologist, digital surveyor and illustrator who has worked on projects in the Aegean) will be offering classes in technical drawing. This will include gaining experience of using equipment to accurately sketch objects and record measurements, and working with unique ancient objects.

Classes will take places on Friday afternoons from 2pm-4pm in the Eton Myers collection, held at Selly Oak’s Orchard Learning Resource Centre, from 21st February to 20th March. If you are looking to develop skills in drawing ancient objects, then this is the opportunity for you.

Spaces are limited to 10-15 students, so please sign up if you are interested by emailing Collections Assistant Jennifer Turner by no later than Friday 7th February.

Confirmation of whether you have been given a place in the class will be sent no later than Wednesday 12th February. Any questions, please also contact Jennifer. We look forward to running this amazing free course!”
