In addition to working away (still) in the studio, I’m preparing to teach a one-day workshop at Harcourt House this Fall, with my friend and fellow artist Stacey Cann.
We will be facilitating the creation and placement of some random acts of art … in particular, the building of nests from repurposed materials and the “bombing” of the downtown area with these little gems. The goal is to have some real fun working with these beautiful forms, to create little sculptures that say a bit about how each of us conceive of nests – and ideas of home, safety, comfort, and so on – and then share our creations, in the hope that someone will come across them in the future, and pause … perhaps smile, and enjoy the moment the work has prompted.
The details are:
NEST BUILD & BOMB WORKSHOP Harcourt House Annex, 10211 – 112 Street Edmonton AB
September 8th, 9am – 4pm
9 am – noon – Nest Building
1 pm – 4 pm – Nest Bombing
Cost: $110 ($80 members)
Supplies included. Individual student supplies may cost up to 15.00 (depending on personal choice). (Please call for more information on supplies and where to purchase them.)
See the Harcourt House website for contact information, and to register!!
Hope to see you there!! (Please note: if registrations are low, the workshop will not run … hint, hint :) )
Yes, exactly! There’s something quite delightful about coming upon the unexpected. Lovely to shake things loose from the ruts we are all so prone to …
Bombing is such a good idea – gets people talking!
