Additional Poke The Muse sessions confirmed

Following the taster workshop of ‘Poke The Muse’/’Procio ‘r Awen in March, local artist Dee Rivaz will be offering 3 further workshops on Monday the 4th, 11th and 18th April, from 1.30pm – 3.30pm.

Sessions are free, however places are limited. Please contact Dee to book your place on 07982 709621 or email dee.rivaz@gmail.com

Whatever your experience or skill, these sessions aim to offer a creative ‘oasis’; the opportunity to work in a relaxed setting with materials on hand to explore ideas in writing or art.  You are free to work individually or in collaboration with others and we hope you will experiment outside your comfort zone, perhaps trying a different medium to work in or working with someone else on a collaborative piece…

ptm1 ptm3Following an introduction of the session theme, participants are simply guided to the display of prompts and suggestions to respond as and how they like.  Pencils, pens, paper, paints, rollers, stamps and other materials are available on a self help basis: with a limited stock offered for sale to take for home use.  You are invited to leave spontaneous work for exhibition and to submit any future work developed out of the sessions for inclusion in exhibitions and publications.

We hope in due course to inspire and gather enough material to add open mic sessions to the exhibition of outcomes and to set up a Folk Art-Lit Press, a small publishing house that caters for writers and artists in the community.

There is an exhibition currently running at TAPE, to give an idea of what went on at the taster event for ‘Poke The Muse’/’Procio ‘r Awen in March, and some of the work that came out of it.  Participants are welcome to submit artwork or writing developed after the event at any time they like for inclusion in future exhibitions, publications and open mic events.

Poke The Muse – Free creative workshop at TAPE

From Monday 21st March 2016 we welcome local artist Dee Rivaz to TAPE as she delivers ‘Poke The Muse’ – a brand new creative workshop which experiments with artist collaboration.

Beginning with 4 initial pilot workshops, Poke The Muse sessions focus on a series of prompts and ideas, and attendees will be invited to respond with writing, image or even both.

Although people are very welcome to work individually, attendees are also encouraged and may find it fun to collaborate with other people and extend dialogue via prose, words, imagery and expression through creative medium.

We hope that you will become more experimental as the sessions progress and as individual and collaborative work progresses.

Depending on the amount and type of work produced during the pilot sessions, there may be an exhibition or performance/open mic exhibit for the last session and maybe even a nice little publication – the outcomes are up to you.

This is a marvellous opportunity for anyone who practices or is interested in the creative arts and would like to experiment and converse with other creative types to push their ideas a little further and provoke some fresh inspiration.  No matter what your skill, craft or area, all are welcome to take part.

Poke the Muse starts on Monday 21st March 2016 and runs from 1.30pm – 3.30pm.

Sessions are free, however places are limited. Please contact Dee to book your place on 07982 709621 or email Dee: dee.rivaz@gmail.com
