Description

ASPIRE ARTS - ABOUT A PLACE - Sewing with Nature - KESTLE BARTON PROJECT

All projects start with a gentle walk observing and absorbing the variety and richness of landscape.

The essence of the workshops are to engage with the surrounding environment and history of place. We will help you create visual work that is your own unique response to the landscape in the vicinity of Kestle Barton. Each workshop will ask you to consider different aspects of the site and will encourage you to engage in aspects such as material potential, mark making, words as image, recording, field work, sample making, idea development and environmental considerations. A power point of relevant artists work will accompany each workshop.

The workshops are designed to complement each other and give a variety of approaches to image generation. Sarah and Jane who previously worked on and ran a top arts foundation course will lead the sessions. You can take one, two or all three workshops. Materials will be supplied but thoughtful additions are always welcome and we encourage all participants to have bring a drawing book and pencils.

Workshop 2 Tuesday 15th & Wednesday 16th May 2018

Sewing with nature.

We will explore the garden making notes about plant structures, different textures, colour palette and curious physical makeup. Using plant like materials that are found, supplied and improvised, you will join and manipulate materials into 3D and surface forms. Sewing and other related techniques will be employed to realise your ideas. On day 2 we will support you in exploring forms and materials in more depth to create ideas for larger projects. Outcomes will include drawings, samples and a heightened sensitivity to material properties and the potential of organic forms for inspiration.
