Cork Creature Faerie Drop-in Workshop
Sat 18 September, 2021 @ 13:00 - 16:00Donation
Every cork is a precious mystical being waiting to be transformed by a human into it’s true form!
In these workshops we will use corks and a variety of found objects, natural materials and printing to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary; we will use our imagination to explore the possibilities of materials that would usually be discarded or go unnoticed. Take your creature home safe in a box or add them to the PRSC Space for display in the Peoples’ Art Fair!
In this beginner drop-in session, open to all ages, participants will be creating Cork Creature Faeries using a variety of materials including twigs, feathers, card, paint and paper. We’ll create beautiful patterns using ‘squiggle printing’ which will then be connected as wings. Creatures take approximately 20 minutes to make and can be simplified.
To ensure that the workshop is accessible to all, there will be corks and parts prepared.
The next People's Art Fair runs from September 16-26, and encompasses an art show, The People's Music, art markets, a Cork Creature Workshop, the Octopus Odyssey Collage Club, Domino Painting, The People's Poetry AND The People's Theatre!
The People's Art Fair is an open group exhibition curated by the PRSC. Acting as a celebration of culture and expressive art, the People’s Art Fair is open to artists, makers, photographers, painters, sculptors and creatives of all shapes and flavours.
