Up, up, upcycling and away!

06 Mar


Last month we welcomed the lovely Esther Coombs to aspex, where she led a workshop in ‘Upcycling Ceramics’ based on her work in the exhibition NEST. The workshop was a huge success, with all participants going away with beautifully illustrated cups and saucers! I was truly amazed at the talent of some of our participants with designs ranging from the Eiffel Tower to biscuits!

Following on from the success of this workshop, we are going to continue to run adult workshops in connection to our Craft & Design programme. We are currently showing the work of Susanna Bauer and will have local artist Georgina Giles at aspex in April to lead a workshop inspired by Susanna’s work. Georgina will teach you new embroidery stitches, whilst you experiment with texture and colour and add unconventional elements to this otherwise traditional technique. This workshop does of course include a cup of our famous Illy coffee or a cup of Portsmouth tea and a slice of cake!
