Season Of Drawing

Practitioner in Residence : Royal Museums Greenwich

Nicole Mollett is a socially engaged artist whose primary medium is drawing. As part of her Season of Drawing residency she has been making drawings in response to The Van De Veldes: Greenwich, Art and The Sea exhibition at the Queen House. Over the course of three months Nicole has delivered ten drawing workshops with public visitors and special groups including a Refugee and Migrant women’s group.

Nicole is working in collaboration with RGM staff to create a new drawing creative resource book inspired by the Queen’s House. The limited edition publication will be freely offered to museum visitors to encourage both adults and young people to explore the architecture and art through a series of creative drawing prompts created by RGM staff members.

Nicole’s Drawing Residency statement:

I will investigate our complex relationship with water and the sea, looking at the importance water has in shaping our lives and society, and how access to water and our ability to navigate the oceans has played a key role in civilisations globally. 

I will run a series of free public workshops testing out different methods of drawings. I will draw from the Van de Velde collection, looking at how the artists use ink to describe the waves, and observing how they describe human behaviour at sea. 

Using research gathered from the collection, I plan to make a long scroll-like drawing which embodies the monumental forces of nature, and reconnects the viewer to a sense of awe and wonder for the sea.”

I gave a talk about the life and work of Gillingham-born artist Tirzah Garwood, who was a talented artist, and her work was often presented in an unconventional, humorous manner. She occasionally worked with her husband Eric Ravilious. This talk is part of an Arts-council funded project, celebrating the lives and work of six extraordinary women with a close and personal connection to Gillingham in Kent.

The talk recorded Tuesday 9 August 2022 at Gillingham Library. The artworks featured within are shared with kind permission of the Towner Art Gallery, Bridgeman Images UK, the artists family, the Victoria & Albert Museum, and the artist Nicole Mollett.

The Water Flea Ballet was performed live to an audience inside the Project 78 Gallery, on the 3rd September 2022.

The Exhibition was curated by Peter Fillingham and contained the works of over 40 visual artists, sound artists, writers, and film makers.

I am giving a talk about the life of versatile and influential artist Tirzah Garwood. Tirzah was part of the celebrated Great Bardfield Artists and created unique work in several mediums.

Nicole has created a series of six murals to represent Tirzah, alongside the 5 other women recognised as part of our circle of six project, celebrating the global impact of 6 women with a personal connection to Gillingham.

Come and join us as we learn more about Tirzah and her life on Tuesday, 9 August 2022 at Gillingham library, 7.30-9pm.

You can book your free place by calling 01634337799, book online with your library card at or visit any Medway library.

The Nest artwork is being installed next week July 2022.

This artwork was created in 2022 by artist Nicole Mollett and a group of students at Lawn Primary School. The children worked together with the artist through a series of drawing workshops, to draw their emotions as fantastical creatures. These drawings were then placed into an imaginary woodland landscape with Oak, Elm, Beech, and silver Birch trees which represent the different classes at the school.

The project was funded by Ebbsfleet Development Company.
