We had a brilliant second session on Saturday for Create by the Coast in Priory Gardens, Gorleston, Norfolk. At this workshop, we had a go at making a series of cyanotype photographic prints in the park. It was magic! Seeing the silhouette plants and feathers appear in blue is something you can never tire of. We then created nature weaving frames using found materials, wire and string. It’s the middle session of 3, so Saturday 26th August is the last chance to come along and get creative outdoors! Please get in touch if you’d like to join in. Thank you to Norfolk County Council’s Arts Project Fund for supporting the sessions.
My artwork is on display at The Shoe Factory Social Club, Norwich for UNA Gallery’s summer exhibition. The show is open from 7th to 27th July to view daily from 11am to 5pm. There are over 50 contemporary artists displaying work, from photography to painting to video, shown over 2 floors.
Lovely afternoon of walking, exploring, experimenting and making on/around Great Yarmouth beach for Create by the Coast‘s first session. We collected found materials and created sculptures using wire and string. Witches, hats, birds and icecreams emerged! Then we had a go at sand-casting hands – with a few broken fingers (the plaster that is!). It was fun to create with found materials and spend time outdoors. The next workshop, at Gorleston Priory Gardens, is in a fortnight and spaces are available to book. It’ll be creative, family-friendly and hands-on, and there are only 2 more left this summer! The project is supported by Norfolk County Council’s Arts Project Fund. Get in touch if you’d like more info or to book your place
Recently, I was awarded a grant from Norfolk County Council’s Arts Project Fund to deliver a series of environmental arts workshops in the Great Yarmouth area in July and August. We’ll be responding to the local landscapes through creative activities such as weaving, sketching and making temporary on-site art. There will be a project exhibition at Great Yarmouth Library from 4th to 9th September.
