Poke The Muse/Procio ‘r Awen is back for June

Poke the Muse is back throughout June, and this months theme is poetry and art.

PTMJune1

Prompts will be available for inspiration should you wish to use them, but everyone is encouraged to work on their own projects at their own speed and however they wish.

As always, creativity is encouraged in a unique, relaxing and supportive atmosphere with likeminded folk.

Work produced during the sessions will be exhibited – should you so wish.

The dates for the June Poke the Muse sessions are:

Monday 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

The session on Monday 13th June is a special workshop featuring Carol Downes, exploring the works of Paul Klee and how poetry can influence art.
The session will involve listening and reading the poetry provided and responding to this visually, then converting the image to a Batik (Wax resist method on fabric).

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.
