A nice little Friday update of what we have been up to and what is coming up.
Create with a colour – Yesterday afternoon we hosted the first of two workshops with current artists in residence Michelle Kurth and Philippa Marshall Create with a colour. These two afternoon workshops give you the opportunity to play with colour, indulge in using a wide range of materials, to weave, paint, make 3d pieces or collage and explore what colour means to you.
Michelle was on hand to teach that you can weave with use about anything and both artists were keen to show what they have been working on over the course of the residency.
If you fancy coming along to the second workshop please do come along to the next workshop on 10th November 1 – 3pm.
Motherhood: (Un)Speakable (Un)Spoken – our very popular workshops run by theatre practitioner and artist Joanna Rosenfeld have now sadly come to an end. The workshops saw Joanna working with mothers of all ages and at all stages of motherhood exploring the journey they have taken and the difficulties and bumps in the road they have experienced. Joanna has been collecting stories and experiences from women for a number of years. These have now been assembled in to a moving one woman show. And you can come and see it for free.
Love Dad x – Our next exhibition will be opening with a late open evening on Thursday 17th November. Love Dad x is artist Andrew Foster’s celebration of his three unborn children showing miscarriages doesn’t only affect women. Andrew is an award winning artist, father of two and Senior Lecturer in B.A (hons) Graphics & Illustration at Cambridge School of Visual & Performing Arts. The exhibition will include sections of his 76 foot scroll ‘Pain will not have the last word’ as well as his inflatable sculptures, paintings and photographs. And if that was not enough there will be a chance to view the short film made by Megan Beattie about Andrew and his journey.
The exhibition will be on show until 15th December open Mon – Fri 9am – 6.30pm.
