16th-20th August 10.30am - 4.30pm each day

If you're thinking of studying for an MA in Fine Art this event could be for you!

The studio has been integral to artistic practices for time in memoriam and has been the subject of critique. Due to the lockdowns and enforced changes to our ways of working we’ve had to adapt and re-evaluate in order to continue with our practices. As we leave lockdown, many of us are re-entering the studio in a renewed capacity and this week-long collaborative residency will look at different approaches taken in using the studio, what the studio is and how we behave in the studio as well as providing large spaces in order to make work, re-integrate, re-familiarise and re-frame our relationship to the studio. Five artists will discuss and demonstrate their own studio strategies, practical bookbinding demonstrations and a series of discreet practical responses will be instigated and inform the activities throughout the week.

Places are limited. The event is free, if you sign up it is expected that you will be able to attend for the whole week from 16th - 20th August. Due to the limited numbers if you are unable to engage with the entire week-long programme we will be unable to offer a place.

Each day will run from10.30am - 4.30pm and will take place on the 7th Floor of our incredible School of Art building.

A staff member will greet you on arrival in the foyer area through the main entrance of the building.
