This workshop invites participants to make something special from waste materials. Using the inside of packaging as a canvas prompts thought around what we consider waste to be.
What will I get from it?
I will demonstrate to you, a few of the techniques which I use to make my pieces as some interesting ways of making marks. Working with a single colour and a single method until the break to exercise your creativity with limitation. After 45 minutes we will have a break for refreshments / a chat. After the break we will begin again but this time with a different approach: you will be encouraged to use any way of mark making you can imagine, using any colour, texture, treatment you so desire. As the two hours comes to a close I will photograph the fruits of your labour and we can talk about how it went.
The materials will be provided. However, if you feel comfortable to, you are encouraged to bring your own disused medical boxes. Sometimes having a personal object involved in the making process can make the experience more significant.
Nobody will be turned away due to lack of funds. It can feel demoralising to not be able to participate because of this so get in touch here.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
