Felicity Ford Workshop Announced for Makers' Month

We’re very excited to present a free workshop with Felicity Ford as part of Makers' Month at the Gallery.

Applying a pioneer’s diy aesthetic to craft and digital recordings, Ford’s art practice is uniquely accessible to audiences.  

Join us on Tuesday 15 April 2014 for a workshop that will celebrate the textures of our city.

Turning 3-D into 2-D: The Fabric of The City - a creative Research & Development workshop

This two-part workshop led by Felicity Ford is suitable for participants aged 10+.  Participants are welcome to stay for the whole day or come for a morning or an afternoon session. 

All materials provided!  All are welcome!

Morning: 3 hours
A leisurely 35 minute walk through Oxford along an accessible route, finding repeat patterns in the surfaces, shapes and textures of the city and its structures. Documenting the patterns using a camera, pens, paper etc., we will return to the Old Fire Station to finish our drawings and mark out where we found our patterns on a map.

Afternoon: 3 hours
Examining the patterns we have found, we will compare them to images of knitted patterns and textures from stitch dictionaries. Matching patterns and textures found in the urban environment with patterns and textures detailed in knitting reference books, we will identify together The Fabric of The City.

Tuesday 15 April 2014 10am-1 pm & 2pm-5pm (come to both or either session)
