Artists of all ages and abilities are being invited to a series of free workshops with a local artist that will culminate in one large artwork being projected onto a local building.
Called ‘Knowledge is….’ the workshops are being led by artist Adam Bridgland and supported by Cambridge Assessment, the University’s international exams board, as part of the public art engagement for its new Triangle headquarters. The workshops will take place at the Signal Box community centre on Glenalmond Avenue and at each workshop Adam will guide participants through the process of making their own unique art works to take away. Digital versions will be combined into a work that will be projected onto one of the walls of The Signal Box in October.
The drop in sessions will take place on the following dates. Everyone is welcome – just turn up on the day.
Thursday, 31 August, 11am to 4pm – Painting as monoprinting
Participants will paint images and words onto a silk screen then print them. They will also use rubber letter stamps to incorporate further text into the work.
Tuesday 12 September 4pm to 8pm – Paper words
Participants will tear and cut text, which might be song lyrics, poetry or a favourite piece of text before using them as a stencil for screen printing.
They will also use rubber letter stamps to incorporate further text into the work.
Saturday 23 September 11am to 4pm – Wish you were here
Wish You Were Here…
Participants will cut and paste onto blank postcards. Using a variety of printed ephemera their collages will respond the world around them. They will also use rubber letter stamps to incorporate text into the work.
The artwork will reflect the main art commission for Triangle, In Other Words, created by artist duo Vong Phaophanit and Claire Oboussier, which you can find out more about it herehttp://thetrianglecambridge.co.uk/public-art/.
