About Still Life

Collectively titled Still Life, the workshops will use the ordinary domestic objects and materials that surround us in our homes as a widely accessible source of inspiration. Through writing, singing and book-making, the workshops will explore materials found in the home – from tableware and food waste to letters and other written items – and use techniques to reuse, recycle and transform them into art.

Still Life began with a writing workshop in March led by Victoria Miguel, during participants produced some writing that some of them later used as a starting point for book-making workshops in May with artist Sarah Grace Dye. In the third workshop with Héloïse you will exploring singing techniques that relate and respond to the objects and things around us.
