The online workshop will guide participants through using clay in an exploration of the subtle senses and awareness in creative practice. Working from our individual spaces, participants will move through themes, practices and reflections together.
What is it about?
- Giving time to finding enjoyment in practice
- Bringing focus to our intrinsic qualities and connections to environment and materials (from home to wilderness).
- Staying within the process and explore the experience; there is no aim to express through outcomes.
- Finding greater sense of embodied awareness in practice.
Priska Falin and Helen Felcey will lead a small group of 16 people, including artists, makers, researchers, professionals and enthusiasts from all fields who would like to engage in the workshop theme, Sensorial Ground.
This is an online workshop that you can access from where you are – studio, home, workplace etc.
A programme of eight 2 hour workshops held between the 31st August and 25th September on Monday mornings and Friday afternoons.
What will we be doing?
Whilst working from our individual spaces, this will be a collective process of moving through practices and exercises together. Each week we will introduce a theme – tactility, light, sound and dwelling – to be explored during our workshops and independently during the week.
Practices and exercises will include, for example, making, video/sound recordings, walking and reflective writing. Each is designed to engage our senses and facilitate an appreciation of our nuanced experiences of day-to-day activities and our surrounding environment.
In addition to the weekly exercises, short daily practices will be offered to emphasise repetition as a method for staying within a process.
Our twice–weekly workshops will be a place for sharing materials, images and sounds that we gather over time. In our conversations we will work with metaphor, to reflect on experiences and open up our processes for interpretation and understanding.
