MAKE A SURREALIST DRAWING
Artist: Kate Hardy
Time: 1pm – 1.30pm, Saturday and Sunday (21 and 22 Oct)
Kate Hardy invites 5 participants with any or no drawing experience to make three surrealist drawings in a 30 minute workshop starting at 1pm promptly on Saturday and Sunday October 21 & 22. If you’d like to secure a place, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
CREATE YOUR EUROPEANPA55PORT
Artist: David Blackmore
Time: 1-5 pm Saturday and Sunday (21 and 22 October)
David Blackmore will be making a participatory artwork that aims to challenge notions of national identity – using transnational European identity as an alternative.
Dependent upon the Open Weekend visitors, who will be working with their own passport covers, this work will instigate, develop and maintain a conversation surrounding the relevance of national and European identity as BREXIT approaches.
David asks that people wishing to fully participate should bring their passports. However, if you’re interested in exploring the idea of European transnationalism and are not willing to use your own passport, an alternative process will be made available.

Workshop is drop-in.
Sympathy for chairs
6 – 7.30 pm
An hour long “workshop” lead by Heather McCalden, a visual artist with dance training, whose practice deals with movement and spatial relationships.
Starting from the idea that during a conference or talk, chairs and their positioning play a role in how the “content” of the talk is passed from speaker to the audience, the ten or so participants to the workshop will be led into a series of exercises/games involving chairs. while musicians and Girolamo will act as “the speakers” , offering a soundtrack made of word and music improvisation, but also actively participating in the games.
Cardboard model making
August 20 and 27
3 – 6 pm
Few places still available to join this small workshop divided into two parts and lead by architect Enrico Arrigoni who will teach how to build cardboard models for architecture.
Studio4 will be used, revamped as a conference room, as a sample, where everything inside will be measured by the participants in order to make 3d models on the computer which will then be turned into 2D shapes which will be cut and assembled into a 1:20 scale model.
As the number of places is limited to 6, we ideally wanted to engage participants over 50 aged especially those who have less opportunity to play with computers, but if you’re young and interested do still get in touch!
Topic-nic and the secret life of an audience
11 am – 5 pm
The “largest” of these events, hosting about 15 participants
To begin, all the participants will be invited to have a picnic in Victoria Park where they will discuss ideas unfamiliar while eating food also new to everyone.
Later everyone will go to Girolamo’s studio at Chisenhale Studios, where he will talk about what his idea of an audience is directly with the participants as an audience. Finally ending with the photographer Rama Lee taking a group picture of everyone posing as the ideal audience.
If you are interested in any of the above events, please email Girolamo
