Luminous Landscapes, Light Night, Creative Quarter Nottingham , 2020.
I led a workshop for Notts Light Night, exploring natural worlds and glowing creatures. We messed around with light, paint and sculpture to create our own luminous landscape to take home.
'Space Academy' with Anna Manfield, BACKLIT Gallery, UK New Artists and Nottingham Refugee Forum, 2019.
This arts workshops took place in May 2019 over three days. I was tasked to propose and deliver three space-themed sessions for those aged 10 upwards. The activities received a really positive response from everyone involved. .
'The Young Harris' with The Harris Museum, Preston, 2019.
In April this year, I was invited to deliver a set of workshops for The Harris. This was publicly advertised and aimed at those aged 6+. Together we learned about each artist in the exhibition through the methods of observation and interpretation, rather than a more didactic and information-dense approach. Each child and carer had their own materials and followed a set of loose drawing tasks.
In the second session, we had drawings from the previous session cut in vinyl; we stuck them around the Museum collectively. This resulted in a visual trail to the exhibition space.
