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 which 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.
About the singing workshop
In this workshop with Héloïse you will explore singing techniques that relate and respond to the objects and things around us.
Héloïse will introduce participants to various singing and composition techniques, share videos, and then lead various exercises that the group will do together. She will invite all participants to set their zoom on mute during the exercises, so that everyone is singing privately in their own space.
There is no preparation needed in advance. Héloïse recommends having a glass of water to hand, and paper and pen if you want to take notes.
Héloïse Werner is a highly experienced singer, composer and improviser. She is co-director of award-winning contemporary quartet The Hermes Experiment with whom she has commissioned over 50 composers and produced a large number of concerts. Héloïse is one of BBC Radio3’s 31 Under 31 Young Stars 2020.
