20th February 2021 | 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Event Navigation


This February artist Juliana Capes will lead a creative workshop that invites you to explore your memories of place and journey through processes of description, mapping, drawing, folding, knotting, weaving and painting.

About this session

Join this informal and engaging session and make artworks layered with meaningful marks and memories.

Guided by Juliana, this workshop will begin with a simple drawing activity based around processes of describing and mapping in relation to places that are special to us, or memorable journeys we have taken, or a commute we aren’t doing at the moment. There will be opportunity to share these with each other and draw maps of each other’s descriptions.

In the workshop Juliana will include some paper folding, knotting and weaving techniques for you to try so that you can develop your map in three dimensions, and there will also be a chance to add paint and explore colour and emotion.
