9 May

Workshops poster with time

We have confirmed the following dates for workshops to be held at theartmarket as part of ‘a corner in the market’ for Situation Leeds 2007….

1st Workshop: Saturday 19th May 1-5pm

2nd Workshop: Tuesday 22nd May 1-5pm
with visiting artist Nicolar Bell

Plushies! These new workshops shall be focusing on using fabrics to make plush characters and creations. We shall be re-using unwanted fabrics, such as old clothes, bed sheets and offcuts. Obviously all fabric that we use will be clean, it will either have been discarded as clothing or unwanted as fabric. We want to help you give this fabric a new life in the form of your unique creation. As usual we will be providing all the equipment and materials that you need to make stuff, but if you want to bring along some fabric that you think is pretty tasty to work with, then please do so.

In the both workshops we will provide pens and paper for people to sketch out their designs prior to making a plushy.
In the second workshop, Nicolar Bell will have templates to enable anyone to make one of their own plush fox neck pieces, like the one below.

All things made in the workshop can be submitted to a final exhibition beginning Saurday 26th May and will be photographed to be included on the blog and in a publication of all works from all of our workshops.

For those of you who don’t know where TheArtMarket is, it’s in the Merrion Market, which is at the back of the Merrion Centre, which is the one with Morrisons in it, which is on Woodhouse Lane, which is a big road that leads up to the Uni.

Nicolar and I will be collaborating to produce some posters for these events, so watch this space for those.
