Introduction to Ceramics for Adults

Tuesdays 7-9.30

For six weeks starting 23rd January (last day is 27th February)

Cost is £60, payable in advance to secure a place.

This is a beginners ceramic course that will explain the basic techniques of hand building, glazing and decorating clay.  It is a hands on experience and participants will make at least one finished piece to take home.

During the first three weeks the course will focus on understanding how to build and decorate with clay using different methods: carving, coiling, pinching, press molding and slab building.  Alongside these practical exercises participants will also learn the basic theory behind the alchemic process of glazing and firing the clay in the kiln.  The last three weeks will focus on planning, designing and developing your personal project by applying what you have learned. The piece will be glazed, fired and taken home.

The course will be taught by Paulina Michnowska, an artist who creates visual allegories in clay. These are often humorous, rooted in autobiographical anecdotes, historical folklore and the dullness of mundanity.

Please book directly with Paulina. Payment must be made before places can be confirmed.

Call for Applications: Studio4 Residencies 2018

11 December, 2017  |  Featured, Residencies + Studio4

We are inviting proposals for Studio4 Residencies at Chisenhale Studios. Residencies will take place between March and September 2018, ranging between one and three months depending on your project needs.

The residencies provide free use of the Studio4 Project Space to artists seeking a short-term studio to develop an idea or execute a project. The aim of each residency is to provide opportunity for a visual artist to experiment with new work or ideas in a fresh, uncluttered space that facilitates sharing and participation while making artistic processes visible to new audiences.

In exchange for use of the studio, the artist undertaking each residency is expected to engage a wider artistic network as well as people who live and work in our local area, involving them in the artistic process through the development of the work itself or a few small public events, showings, workshops, studio conversations etc. Ideally, smaller open-door sessions could also happen during the residency, as an opportunity to engage with other Chisenhale members.

To apply, please write to tell us about the project or idea you’d like to work on, why you need this free short-term studio to realise it and how you will engage people outside of Chisenhale Art Place during the residency. It would be helpful to include what benefit you think will be gained by those audiences and the impact it will have on your practice. Please state your anticipated duration in the studio and any time preference over the summer.

Please note that Studio4 is on the first floor and the building unfortunately has no lift. Studio events should be suitable for small audiences of up to 50 people. We also have a more accessible ground floor education room which could also be made available for public activities.

Applications are due by 10am 15th January 2018. Interviews for short-listed applicants will be held on the morning of Wednesday24th January.

Submission will only be accepted in the following format:

  1. Proposal of project idea, including detail of information requested above.  One or two A4 pages, minimum font size 11.
  2. Current CV.  No more than two A4 pages giving current and relevant experience.
  3. Supporting images.  Text and images from previous projects or illustrating your proposal. No more than three A4 pages, with images saved at a low resolution. Your website address could be added for additional info, but we can’t guarantee we’ll be able to look at it.

Please combine all the above into one pdf file, clearly marked your name

We will not accept submissions that exceed 7 pages and 5MB file size.

Submissions and queries to applications@chisenhale.co.uk

We’ve had some fantastic projects realised in Studio4, the three most recent with Cherelle Sappleton, Girolamo Marri and Jennifer Martin.

Do see postings on our website for these and other residencies and events taking place in our project space. http://chisenhale.co.uk/chisenhale/public-programme/project-space/

Standpoint Futures in Studio4 – Beth Emily Richards

Our Standpoint Futures resident Beth Emily Richards has moved into Studio4 for six weeks of mentoring and making.

Beth is an artist and researcher based in Plymouth. Her work investigates contemporary mythmaking, often exploring popular culture and its associated idiosyncratic subcultures. Frequently the work seeks to complicate macho narratives by re-performing them in ways that use absurdism and failure to undermine dominant histories.

Past works have engaged with personae such as Harry Houdini, Robert Falcon Scott, Francis Drake, Arnold Schwarzenegger and William ‘Buffalo Bill’ Cody; as well as with social trends such as ‘tombstoning’ (teenagers jumping off cliffs into the sea), Mexican telenovelas, ‘80s-‘90s action films, roller derby girls, Western movies, scouting, and motivational speaking.

Working with others is central to Beth’s practice, which frequently involves collaborating with location-based or interest-based communities. During her time at Standpoint Futures she will be consolidating and expanding upon a group of occult enthusiasts and experts with whom she has been attending workshops responding to the life and work of Ithell Colquhoun, a surrealist artist, writer and occultist who worked in Cornwall in the mid-twentieth century.

Beth’s new body of work not only responds to Colquhoun’s creative output and divinatory practices, but to the experience of working with a diverse group of artists, writers and magical practitioners, and forming a temporary community with them. More info at www.bethemilyrichards.com. Image from Ancient Scent project, 2017.

Standpoint Futures visual art development residencies are for emerging/mid-career artists, based outside Greater London. They are designed to be flexible and responsive to the project, needs and desired outcomes of individual participants.

The residency’s chief aims are to provide high quality, individualised opportunities to develop the artist’s practice and career, and to promote the exchange of ideas between London and the wider UK art world.

 

Standpoint Futures is run in partnership and hosted with Chisenhale Studios with support from Arts Council England, Arts Council Wales and the Fenton Arts Trust. http://www.standpointlondon.co.uk/residencies
