Natural Materials Art with Jane Bevan

Natural Materials Art with Jane Bevan

The aim of this workshop is to provide a sociable, creative and mindful day exploring the potential of found, natural materials.

Using foraged seasonal materials (ones provided by Jane and others that you might have brought along with you) serve to generate conversation and shared stories about the countryside, referencing the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) and discussing the woodlands through participants knowledge of myth, folklore, medicine, science, gardening, art and/or poetry.

Jane will explore the materials carefully with you, before you begin to create your own personal artworks trying out a selection of simple hand techniques, choosing from for example:

Plaiting. Stitching. Coiling. Binding. Tying. Weaving. Knotting. Splicing. Piercing. Threading. Stacking. Twisting. Wrapping. Shaping. Constructing. Layering. Scrunching. Tearing.

With this style of ‘adaptive learning’, you will play, experiment and explore without prior design. Everyone will make art they could never have planned for and are always pleased and surprised by what they create. No two pieces will be alike and part of the joy is not knowing what will appear once we begin!

 Participants are guided with new skills, ideas and suggestions and a chance to try out personal ideas on unexpected materials. Work taken home can be wall mounted, framed, worn as jewellery or displayed on a shelf.
