Making It: Life Drawing with Joey Hateley aka The Gender Joker, online, 7 October 2020, from £5 - Book now

Presented by IOU, Making it: Life Drawing with Joey Hateley is a take on a traditional life drawing workshop that tells stories of Joey Hateley’s transgender journey to become a female man.

Based in Halifax, IOU produces shows and contemporary art installations for unexpected indoor and outdoor locations both nationally and internationally. IOU’s work is devised at its creation centre in Halifax which features a studio, gallery and workshop, a year-round learning programme and annual exhibitions.

In response to you-know-what, IOU has taken its Making It programme online.

In this participatory workshop, Joey Hateley, aka The Gender Joker from TransAction Theatre Company, combines performance with live drawing. Using spoken word and costume Joey will throw a light on gender norms, understanding privilege and the politics that surround the trans experience. Using any medium of choice, participants will have the opportunity to draw Joey in six poses throughout the two-hour workshop.

Making It Online is a programme of informal, participatory workshop sessions delivered online. Led by leaders in the field, they are suitable for all abilities with no experience required. Each workshop is an opportunity for creatives to learn new skills and try out different creative techniques in a relaxed setting.

Making It Online continues in October with Creating Art Activities for Children, a session where you can learn how to develop dynamic and educational activities for children and young people
