About this event

This is a two-part workshop with sessions taking place on Sundays 5 and 12 December. Please book in for both dates. You will create mutli-media artwork combining sculptural cut-outs and film, inspired by Howardena Pindell’s abstract and activist work. Over two sessions led by artists Louise Fraser and Eden Bø Dower, create clay cutting tools and make a film or projection focusing on personal or political issues. Cut shapes into a clay slab and view your film through it. Add colour to the cut-out shapes and experiment with laying them over text and images to create changing layers of meaning.

Content warning Pindell’s exhibition contains imagery and descriptions of racism. These workshops are a safe and supported space for young people to engage with and reflect on the exhibition and make new work. For more information contact Caitlin McKinnon, Creative Learning Manager: email caitlin@fruitmarket.co.uk, phone 07527 927916.

Covid Guidelines Please wear a face covering, unless exempt. This is for everyone’s safety and the Fruitmarket is happy to provide face coverings to you when you arrive. Please follow the latest Scottish Government rules on meeting others and travel. Please stay at home if you feel unwell.
