- From 90 British poundsFrom £90
Get out there! Get making! Join tutor Sandra Kennedy on this day-long workshop and immerse yourself in the landscape and learn about Gaelic ‘Ways of Seeing’. This is art making through a fun, outdoorsy day, for those who perhaps shy away from classrooms but want to spend some time in the Uig landscape and learn a bit about our Gaelic culture whilst getting creative at the same time. For any level of maker from curious newbie to established artist. Participants will be led into Uig, moving through the landscape in this workshop based around your own observations and curiosity. During the morning session participants will get outside, making images through drawing, collecting plants and found objects during their walk, then after lunch, back in the studio, participants will learn some geli mono printing techniques. Working from the mornings drawings as a guide, or from memory, in the afternoon session participants will make simple mono prints, hand pulled without a press using geli plates. Participants will also have a chance to explore the qualities of common grasses or found objects by printing directly with these, and making ghost prints. By the end of the session we hope participants will leave with smiles, sandy shoes, full tummies and a collection of evocative images that connect them to their day in Uig. 10am-4pm Locally sourced, seasonal lunch, hot drinks and home baking will be provided. We can cater for all dietary requirements if noted at the point of booking. 2023 dates July 5th, 19th, 26th August 2nd, 9th September 13th, 27th Costs cover all your art making materials, lunch, hot drinks and home baking.
