The Collective Studio – Materiality Talk and Workshop

Tue 21st May 2019

Laura White (Goldsmiths)
Exploring the Physicality of Materials and Objects

10.30am – 3.30pm
The NewBridge Project : Gateshead

Members: free | Non-members: £3.00
Please book here.

Following the fun we had last year (which resulted in encapsulating a Collective Studio member in dough) we’ve again invited Laura White up to run an experimental workshop exploring materiality.

Together will explore how our bodies relate, negotiate and deal with materials/objects/stuff. The day will begin with a short Materiality Talk by Laura followed by a two-phased workshop. 

This will be of interest to all everyone interested in STUFF, regardless as to whether your art practice is about materiality. Last year’s workshop taught us that getting invited into someone else’s world inspires all kinds of possibilities for your own imaginations!

Please bring along an object or material you enjoy handling.
Please also bring along anything from the list below you have at home.

Bring a packed lunch or money for lunch from the nearby shops, we’ll provide tea, coffee and soft drinks for free.

More info on Laura here and her teaching here.
