As part of our Teach Inspire Create annual programme of events, we’re excited to welcome George Yarnton for a live workshop: Drawing what you love on 18 November 2021.

Head of Design for clothing brand, Hoax 1994, George is responsible for the visual direction of the brand, including graphic development of products and advertising. Alongside his career in illustration, George pursued a career in Further Education teaching for 4 years.

In both his professional and personal work, he draws on his passions to influence his practice, with his inspirations ranging from traditional tattooing and sign painting to skateboarding and nature.

I think skateboarding culture directs almost all of what I make as an illustrator. Most of my inspiration comes from who I meet and see when I’m out and about, the conversations we have and hear.” – George Yarnton on No Comply Network

In this session, George will discuss his own development as an artist and teacher and how he discovered his own philosophy of drawing what he loves. He will be looking at his own journey in the arts, through his own teaching practice that was driven by his creative practice in drawing and exploring the relationships between these career paths. The session is intended to encourage our educators to think about how their own practice as an artist can have a huge impact on their teaching ideas.

We can’t wait to find out more about his journey and we hope you will be able to join us.

All delegates must book a place to attend. Booking in advance is also highly recommended.
