With thanks to Gwanwyn for a grant to help celebrate their fesival of creativity in older age, TAPE Community Arts Centre is offering two afternoon workshops on 9th and 16th May, as part of their Poke the Muse group sessions.
Aiming to offer a creative ‘oasis’, whatever your experience or skill, these sessions offer the opportunity to work in a relaxed setting with materials on hand to explore portraiture in writing or art. You are free to work individually of course but we also hope people will have a go at collaborating to draw out each other’s stories in image and word. There will be plenty of inspiration and guidance, if required.
On hand too, will be pencils, pens, paper, paints, rollers, stamps and other materials to use as you wish. Participants will be invited to submit artwork or writing developed during and after the event, for inclusion in a collection of outcomes and a month long exhibition which will open during the Gwanwyn Festival week.
People are too used to thinking, talking or portraying themselves in an apologetic way. These sessions will invite you to poke your apologetic self in the ribs and take time out to have fun, surprise yourself and to celebrate what you love about yourself and your life!
Sessions are free, however places are limited. Please contact Dee to book your place on 07982 709621 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
