In 2018 our workshop programme is focusing on looking at the full spectrum of emotion. Using photography and working with a number of facilitators our workshops will explore both our positive and negative emotions using innovative and engaging practices by artists working in arts and health. See below for what we have coming up.

Our workshops are funded by the Big Lottery Fund.

In this workshop, run by photographer Celine Marchbank, participants will be asked to explore and examine personal emotions, good or bad, as a way to better understand them. Participants will be challenged to visualise these ways of feeling and record them in a permanent form: the photograph.

 

15th May: Family Cubism

1.30pm — 4pm, Sun room
Free, Click here to book a space

Run by Paloma Tendero this workshop will combine photography and cubism to play with dimension, perspective, line and colour to explore family features and identity.

 

You will be photographing your own faces and those of your family and then experimenting with rebuilding them through collage. You can then embellish your creations with colour and geometric elements to transform your portrait in a style of Picasso’s cubist paintings. 

Create a flat image or something sculptural, depending on your creativity!

This workshop is designed for family members (minimum of 2) but friends attending together are welcome too.
