A few weeks ago I ran a community workshop helping participants to make Art from found materials.
I love working with found materials, so this was just perfect! Found objects can be anything you find interesting, that could be modified or put together to make a sculpture or a three-dimensional picture. In this workshop we created assemblages in box frames made from paper ephemera and found objects.
We provided plenty of materials, and some people brought along a few bits they wanted to include.
They made some great work…
This workshop was part of a project from Icon Theatre called Move & Make. It’s for anyone in the community who wants to get creative and is held at The Brook Theatre in Chatham. My clay mask workshop was also one of them.
Move & Make creative workshops are all about using the participatory arts to connect, create and communicate with other like-minded people.
Focussing on expression, creativity and well-being, people with an interest in the arts are invited to take part in multi-art form workshops, run by Icon Theatre professionals and guest practitioners in a wide variety of disciplines.
The project will conclude with an exhibition at Rochester Library from 7th April 2014.
The content of the workshops are programmed by participants, so Icon Theatre have asked for ideas throughout, to help shape the creative process. The workshops have been varied, friendly and informal. No experience is necessary – they invite anyone and everyone to get involved.
Workshops have run most Mondays from 10am – 12noon at The Brook Theatre in Chatham, with a suggested donation of £1, or Pay What You Can.
