Event Details

Draw a Dance with Cbloxx | 11.30am-2.00pm


Join Cbloxx in the Yorkshire Dance Foyer over the lunch period for expressive mark making.

Draw a Dance is an exclusive workshop using a variety of mediums such as water based spraypaint and charcoal inks to echo the flow of live dance.

Born in the old Yorkshire mill town of Huddersfield, Cbloxx (Jay Gilleard) is an English muralist, painter, music producer and multidisciplinary artist. They are known for co-founding internationally acclaimed street art duo Nomad Clan who painted the tallest mural in the UK.

Currently based between the wilderness of the Pennines and the dust bowl of Los Angeles Cbloxx resumed solo practice in 2020 after 6 years touring globally with Nomad.

Light refreshments and nibbles will be available over the lunch period. We invite you to bring your lunch to eat at Yorkshire Dance.
