Itinerary of workshops:
Workshop 1: Terracotta banner painting – 23 September, 14 October, 11 November & 2 December
Connect with nature and create a family banner to be displayed in the gallery, using terracotta clay, water and brushes. A fun and sensory exploration of creating paintings with the earth as a material, inspired by themes and processes in our exhibition Arcadia for All?
Workshop 2: Twilight landscapes – 30 September, 21 October, 18 November & 9 December
As our days shorten towards the end of this year, be inspired by the twilight forest paintings featured in Arcadia for All? and create your own twilight landscape. Explore the magic and mystery of twilight, to create a landscape of a place you know, or a place from your dreams or imagination – what stories can we tell through depicting the night?
Workshop 3: Reimagining Maps – 7 October, 4 November, 25 November & 16 December
Humans have created maps of their surroundings for thousands of years. Maps help us connect with our past, communicate landscapes and navigate journeys. In this playful workshop, we will create our own artworks, using simple collage techniques and watercolour paints, to reimagine new landscapes.
