About the workshop:

Join visual artist Lucy Irvine in this Spatial practice and experimental weaving workshop as part of our Strung exhibition. Lucy will teach you a series of basic weaving techniques and how to use everyday materials to create site-specific woven sculptures. The aim of this workshop is to further your understanding into the potential complexities of space and expand upon spatial awareness as part of creative practice. This will include considering traces of movement, spanning and connecting space and working collaboratively on a large-scale installation.

In addition to materials provided, participants are encouraged to bring materials that they would like to experiment with or that are already of relevance to their individual practice. During the workshop you’ll have the time and unique opportunity to discuss your artwork and ideas with the Lucy.

What you’ll get:

+ Insight into Lucy’s creative practice and processes and her works featured in the Strung exhibition
+ Lots of diverse materials to experiment with
+ All the tools you need, including pencils, various types of tape, craft knifes and scissors
+ Snacks and tea, coffee and juice!

What to bring:

+ Camera – a camera phone is fine!
+ Sketchbook
+ Lunch (there’s also plenty of places to eat near artisan)
+ We’ll have plenty of materials for you to use; however, please feel free to bring along any materials you would like to experiment with. These could be multiples of small components (eg. cardboard boxes, buttons, lids), materials in lengths (eg. thread, ribbon, strips of paper or materials).
