In this workshop be inspired by the colours and rich history of learning in The Beaney to create the ultimate icon of knowledge : your very own book!
To create your book you will be encouraged to explore colour and experiment with a range of mono- printing, stencil, cut-out, and vinyl layering techniques, to make simple folded book structures compiled in the galleries.
Participants will use ideas from Grayson Perry’s tapestries as a starting point for their imagery, followed by a session making work inspired directly from objects in The Beaney collections. The resulting prints and collages will be organised and folded into simple but striking book structures.
About the Workshop series:
Join experienced artist Sara Wicks in these exciting workshops designed especially for adults!
Sara will help you interpret , through a range of materials and using The Beaney’s own collection for reference and inspiration, Grayson Perry’s journey through consumerism, taste, class and the rise and fall of his central character Tim Rakewell.
