Encouraging the unexpected and accidental.
29th and 30th September – optional extra Monday 1st October
2 day fee £90
3 day fee £125
This workshop is a slimmed down version of Claire’s summer school (For logistical reasons we had to cancel the summer course)
This course is aimed at people of all levels of experience who wish to challenge their creative thinking, or who are at the very beginning of their creative journey, or who would welcome intense support for a specific project. The course will appeal to artists or designers who work in any media, as a catalyst for developing ideas and extending their creative approaches.
Just one more day
‘I wish I had longer to work on this….just one more day would be perfect’ is a comment made at the end of workshops many times.
With this in mind we have decided to pilot the option to have that extra day! Monday 1st October.
Draw………The course will focus on drawing, mark making and collage in an experimental and non-conventional way.
Think………Linking your drawings and research to the development and execution of ideas and visual narratives.
Make…….The emphasis for the workshop will be on encouraging the unexpected and accidental, the end result will evolve out of this process. You may produce a body of work for future development or a final resolved piece the choice will be yours!
You will work individually, but with strong support from Claire and will have a chance to discuss and share ideas with the rest of the group.
A bit about Claire Heminsley
Claire studied textiles at The Glasgow School of Art. She set up INCAHOOTS 30 years ago and expanded her work to include illustration. During this time she has worked on a wide range of commissions, exhibitions and projects. Claire works with a broad range of media and consequently has a diverse output, from detailed scraperboard prints to more experimental sculptural and mixed media pieces for exhibition. Her most recent solo exhibition ‘Objects of Celebration’ embodies all aspects of her practice.
Alongside this she has taught design, textiles and illustration in further and higher education and for workshops throughout Scotland. Her design practice feeds into her teaching and vice versa providing a perfect combination.
