Artist: Paulina Michnowska
Time: 11.15am – 12.45pm, Saturday 21st October
For: Children accompanied by an adult.
Paulina Michnowska, an artist who incorporates ceramics within her visual allegories, opens her studio for some hands-on clay making. Encouraging family learning, Paulina will teach participants how to work with clay to create individual masks (since it’s nearly Hallowe’en!). She will then fire the masks in an off-site kiln, which participants can collect during the following week.
****update**** We’ve had a lot of requests to make trainers instead of masks, so that’s what we’re going to do! Trainers win!

Into the Wild is a programme devised by Chisenhale Studio artists to support and develop recent BA graduates, to thrive and survive in the artworld after college. It’s wildly successful and the group show will feature artists you’ll be seeing much more of in the future.
Facilitation Piece (for harmonious being) 2017 is new live performance by artist Monika Oechsler, in collaboration with artist & technologist Charles Gershom. This experimental work presents two simultaneous and intermittent durational performances, Live Chat & Sound Stage.

The studio artists are delighted to be running Window Shopping over the Open Weekend, an initiative to raise crucial funds to repair some of the windows in the Studios. Over 40 artists have kindly donated window-pane-sized works on paper which will be displayed and on sale for £100 each. The donated works will be available to view digitally in advance, but can only be bought in person during the weekend opening hours. Purchased work will be taken off the display once paid for, so we advise arriving early if you have your eye on something specific!
