Famous for his tapestries, ceramic vases and quirky cross-dressing, Turner Prize-winner Grayson Perry is taking to British TV screens with his new programme, Grayson’s Art Club.


Hoping to encourage us to learn a new skill, or indeed finesse an old one, during our time in coronavirus isolation, Perry will be chatting to numerous other famous artists about their creative processes whilst teaching Channel 4 viewers to draw, paint and sculpt.


If you fancy seeing your home-made artistic masterpieces beyond the walls of your living room, Perry will also be inviting viewers to create visual representations of their time in quarantine, the best of which will be selected for display in the artist’s exhibition documenting the UK’s shifting attitudes over the coming months.
