CGP London // The Gallery
1-4 August // 8-10 August // 15-18 August // 10am-3pm each day

Come and enjoy a series of free drop-in workshops at The Gallery over three weeks during the summer holidays with a different theme each week and tailored to specific age groups. Be inspired by our Nestbox Trail in Southwark Park, construct a story through making beautiful objects and collages, and make petite paper dioramas of your special places.

Each series will be led by a different artist so come back every week for something new!

ABOUT:
Flora Duley has a socially-engaged art practice. She is interested in Educational and Pedagogical structures creating installations for visitor participation that include video, performance, sculpture and Painting.

Abigail Hunt’s artistic practice centres around found objects and images and a procession of tasks: the investigative research of an image, the deconstruction of a line, the disablement of form and finally the reconstruction and reconfiguration of the object. These processes are similar to that of understanding a new language. Through translating one language of images and the later reformation and retelling through made objects Abigail creates her own structures, tones and descriptions.

Alexa Lowe is an artist interested in exploring the voice of the mark through a range of materials and methods. She is interested in how the process of making brings thoughts into being and works with different community groups to encourage and further their creative outputs. She holds a BA in Visual Arts from the University of California, Los Angeles.
