I’ll be in Birmingham this weekend running a drop in workshop for families as part of the Taking Time programme of events (see post below). Each living thing has specific individual characteristics and qualities of form, colour and texture. Here, ash stalks. We will be working with these and other natural found marks from fields, woods and heath to explore rhythm and pattern. Everyone’s individual design will be photographed and printed before being dismantled – a free and non-precious attitude to drawing and design work. A gallery of ideas will gradually build up over the weekend. I hope to bring you some images. The Waterhall Seminar Room, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery Saturday 14 November from 11am Sunday 15 November from 1pm
Artists in Residence at the V&A
With an exciting and ever-changing programme of artists and designers, there’s never a dull moment in our residency studios. We will give you an exclusive look into what it’s like to be in residence at the world’s greatest museum of art and design.
We have a thriving and exciting programme of artists in residence here at the Museum, with at least two practitioners inhabiting our studios at any given time.
Here we show the process of being an artist or designer in residence here at the V&A, with behind-the-scenes insights and stories from Residency Co-ordinator, Laura Southall, and the artists themselves.
