Bow Families: sensory ikebana – self-portraits through objects with Lou-Atessa Marcellin

Sunday 26th March 2023 , 11:00am to 1:00pm

Come along and make a three-dimensional collage using words, sound and movement to explore what home and place mean to us with artist Lou-Atessa Marcellin. 

How we explore where we live is so influenced by our senses and what they detect – whether it’s how we feel, where we are, or what we love to do. 

In this workshop, children and families will build on this understanding to use sound, movement and a range of fun colours and craft materials to re-frame their favourite things about where they live, creating unique three-dimensional collages of wherever their imagination takes them. 

This event is an inclusive, friendly environment which is accessible to all abilities and age groups.   

Bow Families is a series of free, drop-in family art workshops that take place on the last Sunday of every month in the Bow Arts Courtyard. These sessions are a wonderful opportunity for local families to get creative and try something new! Each session is led by a Bow Arts’ Artist and all materials are provided  

Free (Drop-in workshop, no booking required – all are welcome!)
