A Stories in Transit and Art Refuge workshop
20 May 2019
Elephant West, White City, London
Register to join here.
An afternoon/evening of creative workshops exploring themes of Journeys and Migration through imaginative play and collaborative storytelling, bringing stories to life with drawing, printmaking, music, puppets and movement.
This drop-in event will be open to everyone from the local community, across London and beyond: children, families, teenagers, adults, artists, writers, storytellers, researchers, poets, community workers, office workers ...
These workshops will begin with a story from the Arabian Nights, about someone who dreams the clues to finding lost treasure. This will act as a starting point for a new set of imagined stories created by all who attend!
Bobby Lloyd and Miriam Nabarro from Art Refuge UK are a leading cyanotype (sunprint) and experimental mono-print workshop. The artists will introduce the printing processes of cyanotype and mono-print to explore place, journeys, maps and migration - using ink, water, tape, toy vehicles, tracks, objects, cloud and hopefully sun!
