The Observation and Making in Place is a five day workshop for people who want to directly experience working creatively with fire and glass and with daily access to the nearby rugged beauty of the North Antrim Coast landscape. The workshop will be co-facilitated by Annie Cattrell and Andrea Spencer. The combination of the studio facility and the North Antrim Coast will be a magnificent resource for the workshop. Surrounded by open fields and farmland, close to water and the unique geological features that characterize this area, we will have plenty of opportunity to explore and observe patterns, structures and spaces found in the natural environment. Part of our daily routine will be investigating our surroundings, making observations and finding inspiration in nature. The information we gather from exploring the natural environment, we will then bring back to the studio and translate through materials.
This is the fourth time that Annie and Andrea will collaborate to co facilitate an intensive workshop.
The emphasis of this collaborative workshops is concerned with the exploration of material, ideas and the subsequent distillation of the participant’s creative voice. This unique workshop aims to expand upon meaningful narratives and the poetic, with emphasis on the actual location. Together, their combined approaches and skills offer a breadth of technical competence in flameworking glass and sculpture, along with insightful and constructive guidance for each individual.
