Tutor - Jill Carter

2-day workshop

Saturday 11 May 2024, 10.30am - 4.30pm and Sunday 12 May, 10.30am - 3.30pm

Have fun up-cycling everyday found materials, transforming bits and bobs into narrative rich self-portraiture.  Enjoy creating unique expressive 2D and/or 3D poetic, playful, serious or nonsense expressive characters.Discover a creative dialogue between the process of making, the materials and life experiences.  There will be some collage materials to dip into, but please gather a collection of your own your mixed media, photographs, old artworks and objects to bring.  Then explore ways to intuitively respond with packaging, newspapers, magazine cuttings. Paint, collage and create curious and colourful assemblages which portray moods, feelings and personal stories.

There will be a range of exciting materials provided in the studio, although you will need to supplement with some found objects/ephemera from home to personalise your work. Please bring an apron or wear clothes suitable for an art studio. Please bring a bag or portfolio for taking your work home at the end of the session.
