“Well-behaved women seldom make history” Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, 1976
International Women’s Day runs each year on 8th March across the globe. This year’s theme is Choose to Challenge and together we can celebrate the woman we admire in our lives who chose to challenge.
We will have a fun two hour art workshop exploring our favourite feminist icons and recreate their energy and beauty in our own unique artworks. This will include a combination of drawing, collaging and finishing with stitching on the paper.
Aimed at all levels, and abilities, with a focus on ensuring, with limited art supplies, everyone can take part in art (if you do not have needle and thread that’s not a problem, you can still take part). Ideal for families too (children to be accompanied by an adult) and a great evening for couples to get together and create (and of course, you only need one ticket!).
Suggested donation £15. I’m trialing the donation based tickets here as my ethos is for all to access art. I please ask to be honest with the amount you can afford, as like many artists, I don’t make a killing out of art, thanks!
The online workshop is delivered in a way to avoid webinar fatigue with an engaging interactive presentation and of course, practical art activities – let’s call it a WebinART!
What you will need:
- Images of your favourite feminist icon
- A4 plain paper
- Magazines and newspaper – anything with faces in we can collage with
- Glue: if you don’t have any, this link will show you how to make glue at home with common kitchen ingredients
- Sharp embroidery needle and embroidery threads (if you don’t have these supplies please still attend as we can continue with mark making instead of stitching)
Please ensure you have everything ready to get the best out of the workshop.
Running online workshops is great for getting everyone across the globe to take part, please check here to see what time my 6pm (GMT) workshops will be in your time zone.
(I am running other times and dates, as well as other courses coming soon, please see my page here for more information)
Your link to the Zoom webinart will be in your Eventbrite ticket, please arrive in good time to avoid any issues in gaining access.
I really look forward to having some art fun together and if you have any questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me on Facebook.
