Four Days of Conversation and Making with Fraser Taylor
This intensive four day workshop will allow each participant to develop strategies in advancing their practice. You will be required to bring existing work with you which will be discussed in a one on one with Fraser establishing a way of moving the work forward. The course will encourage a fast-paced experimental approach to making. The conclusion will be a constructive group conversation which will help you to identify strengths and establish methods that will provide useful content to reflect upon within your own creative environment.
On day two and three you will work independently and enjoy discussions and advice from your peer group. Fraser will not be at the Arthouse on day 2 and 3.
The workshop will conclude with a constructive critique with Fraser and the group which will identify strengths and a path on how to maintain a forward-thinking practice.
This course is suitable for any discipline or level of experience.
Fee for the 4 days is £165 (+ Eventbrite fee)
