Join us for this practical art workshop series led by a different guest artist each time, inspired by our exhibition 'Another View: Landscapes by Women Artists'.

As the exhibition looks at how landscapes have been interpreted and represented by women over the 19th and 20th centuries, we will be running a series of workshops exploring how a variety of contemporary women artists today are translating their experience of landscapes into their practice. Participants will be supported to create their own unique piece to take home, drawing on inspiration from each artists own techniques, ideas and experiences.

This workshop will be led by artist Bindi Vora.

Bindi Vora is an interdisciplinary artist of Kenyan Indian heritage, interested in how ideas of resistance and resilience are influenced by our everyday surroundings. Her practice often combines collage, linguistics, analogue processes, and an archive of found photography procured over the last decade. Her works are part of collections including the MoMA artist book collection (US); Guy’s and St Thomas Foundation (UK); Imperial Health Charity (UK), The Women’s Art Library (UK); The National Art Library at the Victoria & Albert Museum (UK) amongst others. She is currently the artist-in-residence at the National Museum Northern Ireland as part of the 20/20 programme led by the UAL Decolonising Arts Institute.

In this practical workshop, exploring her process of collage, we will combine reference images provided, your own images or a combination of both – using cut outs of shapes, drawing and paint. By creating layered interventions we will consider ourselves in relation to the landscape, reflecting on how women, particularly women of colour, have experienced nature, its historical legacies and how they may shape personal and collective ideas of access, culture and desire that may have been associated with the landscape.

The session will take place on 20 July, and run from 1-4pm. Tickets will be £25 per person (concessions are available) and must be booked in advance. This workshop is most suited to young people and adults (16 and above).
