Description

As part of 'Dear Christine' (a tribute to Christine Keeler) Sadie Hennessy will invite participants to make a commemorative plate celebrating the great women that the participants have nominated.

This workshop is open to anyone over the age of 14 who would like to create a small piece of take-home art celebrating iconic women. After a brief introduction to the medium of collage, Sadie Hennessy will invite participants to make a commemorative plate featuring the great women that the participants have nominated. The plates will be made using a simple decal transfer technique. The style of the plates will be following a long tradition of Royal commemorative ware, but with a very modern twist! There will also be the chance to create paper collage greetings cards, for those that wish to do so. All materials will be provided.

When signing up for the workshop, please suggest women that you would like to commemorate.

Sadie Hennessy is a collage artist and printmaker. She is currently Screen Print Fellow at the Royal Academy. 

Places on this workshop are limited to 15. Places are free but please contact the gallery to secure a place and book early to avoid disappointment.

'Dear Christine' is curated by Fionn Wilson and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
