About the Workshops:

Monday, 15 August: Emily Hopkins – Drawing, Cyanotypes, & Sculpture
Join artist and educator Emily Hopkins (@emilyvhopkins & @anotherartclub) in workshops that will explore a variety of art-making techniques to respond to the Pitzhanger house, gardens and exhibition. First, responding to the grounds of Pitzhanger, participants will explore different styles of drawing using natural tools and materials, then they will create cyanotypes using natural materials. In the afternoon, they will explore the house and exhibition by experimenting with sculpture.

Tuesday, 16 August: Catherine Walker – Observational Drawing & Sustainable Painting
Artist and art teacher Catherine Walker will be leading two wonderful workshops. First, using several experimental methods, participants will take observational studies from around Pitzhanger Manor and Walpole Park. Techniques will include one-line drawings, drawing without looking at the paper and rubbing with natural textures. Then, gathering materials from Walpole Park, students will create their own painting tools and test these, making marks and considering different ways to use the tools. Finally, students will use the tools to create a pattern with inspiration from the wallpaper around Pitzhanger Manor.

Wednesday, 17 August: Tatiana Gentil Machado – Light Boxes & Structures
Artist, architect, and founder of CLE | Creative Learning Experiences, an organisation that develops design projects and runs creative after-school clubs and workshops for schools and educational centres, Tatiana Gentil Machado will lead children in the creation of an architectural model of a space that changes with light and colour. Inspired by Rana Begum’s installations and Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery stained glass windows, they will be encouraged to look at forms and patterns in the shadows created by nature and buildings. They will design and customise their own light box-spaces and structures, experimenting and testing materials with different colours, textures and transparencies.

Thursday, 18 August: Bonnie Gibbons – Rubbings & Textures from Nature | Nathan Marsh – Sound Walking & Sound Mapping
First, artist Bonnie Gibbons will share her approach to observation, design and mark making, inspired by the unexpected wonder of our local nature. Walking through Pitzhanger’s gardens and the surrounding Walpole Park, this hands-on workshop will explore what we can learn from the textures on our doorstep.

In the afternoon, interdisciplinary educator and sound artist Nathan Marsh will lead participants on a “sound walk” through Pitzhanger Manor and Walpole Park, using the practice of active listening to traverse the sonic environment before creating their very own “sound maps” to document the sounds of their community.

Friday, 19 August: Ola Hincapié – Kite Making & Card Game Design
Inspired by Rana Begum’s outdoor installation on the grounds of Pitzhanger Manor, multidisciplinary artist Ola Hincapié will guide participants in making colourful kites, displaying them outdoors in the form of a mini performance floating in the sky. Then, after a visit of the Manor, participants will view a map of the rooms. They will create their own cards, making up fictional characters and special stories for each room. Perhaps, a symbolic decoration or an architectural feature will offer supernatural powers to anyone who drops by, or a clue can help players get to the secret Monk’s Dining Room inside the Manor… This workshop invites participants to imagine a life at Pitzhanger with mysteries, secrets and surprises using skills of drawing and storytelling.
