Easter Saturday!

Posted in events, Workshops by Alicia on March 20, 2008

We have some activities lined up for you on this fine Easter bank holiday weekend…
Saturday 22nd March 12-5pm

Come do some collaborative painting with Toby Juliff as part of his ‘I don’t believe in painting’ exhibition.  There will be a huge canvas to work on and paints available to use.

Also, there will be a special Easter Re-Toyed Trash sewing workshop making all things Easter-shaped out of fabric.

Wash this down with some cake and chocolate and it’s set to be a creative mini festival.

Everyone welcome!

Visitors to the exhibition experienced a different way of displaying paintings and were able to take away a copy of Toby Juliff’s essay.

Some of the paintings were installed with their painted side concealed by a wall, leaving visitors to admire the back or wanting to turn the paintings around.

Please Do Touch! Toby welcomed people to touch and rearrange the paintings if they wanted.

Don’t forget the collaborative painting event on Saturday 22nd March 12-5pm where everyone is welcome to come and paint a rather large canvas with Toby. Come down to theartmarket and slop some paint about.
