Drawing stories 2
Saturday 3 February at 9:30 am - 5:30 pm£110
The second, in a seasonal series of experimental days using psychogeography as a framework for creative practice, with writer Dr Alison Clare Scott and visual artist Pip Lewis. Find out more about the first Drawing stories day here
Psychogeography is both a way of moving through an environment; and the effect of engaging with the geographical location differently. What was initially an urban practice will be diversified into the wild, rural landscape of West Wales. We will explore the possibilities of navigating topography, identifying the palimpsest of the locale and expressing our responses through creative writing and visual arts.
An experimental approach will be encouraged, introducing ideas around memory, history, voices and narratives that emerge in response to place and the way they make us feel or behave.
The starting point for this second day in the series is Imbolc. As we move out of midwinter stillness to the point of the year when energy stirs and our attention moves from within to the world around us, this workshop will provide opportunities to connect and commune with writers and artists and the incipient energies of the natural landscape at the farmstead. Concepts of time and trees will be our focus within the framework of psychogeography and development of creative expression.
The workshop will be of interest to those who are interested in developing their creative practice and exploring the playful interplay between writing and visual arts in relation to psychogeography and the sense of place.
Cost £110 per person, inclusive of a fresh organically grown lunch, coffees, teas, cake and all art materials needed for the day.
