  • WORKSHOPS AND DEMOS

    Tapestry Weaving Demo with Anna S. King Both days, throughout the day Studio 308 Watch Anna as she works on her latest tapestry, demonstrating the techniques used to create it. She welcomes further questions from the public regarding her craft, work or technique. This demo is suitable for visitors of all ages.

    Mosaic Demonstration with Joanna Kessel MA RCA Both days, 3—3.45pm Studio 303

    Joanna will demonstrate the traditional Italian mosaic-making tools of the hammer and hardie as she works on a mosaic in her studio. Fascinated by this ancient craft that is rooted in history Joanna creates highly contemporary mosaic artworks. Having recently returned from the international mosaic biennale Ravenna Mosaico, Joanna will also show a selection of images from this prestigious event.

    Mokuhanga Demo with Pau l Furneaux Both days, 12—12.45pm Gallery back room

    Many people will be familiar with the image of the huge crashing wave “Great Wave of Kanagawa” with Mount Fuji in the background by the famous Katsushika Hokusai. During this demo contemporary Scottish artist Paul Furneaux will reveal some of the techniques used.

    Paul will highlight some of the skills involved in hand printing Japanese woodblock printing, illustrating through demonstration the control that hand printing and brushed application of colour can give. He will also talk about the tools used in this technique and demonstrate their use and will offer an opportunity for visitors to ask questions. This demonstration is suitable for all ages.

    Northern Landscapes with Georgia Rose Murray Saturday 5th December, 12—2pm Studio 302

    Georgia presents a painting workshop which will begin with looking at images of Icelandic landscapes. You will then use paint to translate how the images make you feel. Participants may choose to reinterpret the views objectively or to express their reactions by creating more abstract painted marks. The paintings will be done on folded card so participants can give their finished works as Christmas cards if they wish.

    Painting Demo with David Forster Both days, 4—4:45 Studio 306 David Forster’s intensely wrought landscape paintings refer to the traditions of the 18th and 19th centuries. Though the scenes depicted are topographically correct, light and colour are altered to create a fictionalised reality, that conveys the authority of photo realist document. Come and watch David as he works on his landscapes.

    Patriothall art gallery and studios were created in 1988 when WASPS Studios converted the old Co-op bakery into a studio complex and gallery space.

    The lease was due to expire in 2005 without the option of a renewal, threatening the loss of the building which provided studio space for over 50 artists. The artists launched a campaign to save the building and the building was purchased by Wasps and refurbished in 2004, securing the future of these fantastic studios for use by generations of artists to come. Patriothall Gallery is currently led by a committee of artists working within the building and more information about the gallery can be found on its website www.patriothallgallery.co.uk

    Patriothall’s Open Studios offers an excellent opportunity to meet the artists, view their finished work, watch live demonstrations or attend a workshop. Refreshments will also be available throughout the weekend.
