Fabric and Film

Date: 
Saturday, May 26, 2018
Address: 
Bow Arts Trust, 183 Bow Road, London E3 2SJ
Time: 
12pm - 4pm

A creative and fun afternoon for families with children (aged 5+) to explore textiles with artist-duo Kaleidoworks.

This workshop takes inspiration from the invention of purple and explores colour and the heritage of fabric dying in the local textile industry. We will use the yard as a messy, colourful area to make films and animations and hope to use the architecture space to create darkness and project the films. 

Films will be created from mixing liquid colours in buckets and underwater film. We will also set up a washing line installation with coloured fabrics for families to move around and photograph using stop motion animation. The concept for the screening room, is to ‘digitally dye’ - using the coloured projection beam to colour swarths of white fabric.

Light refreshments will be provided but please bring along any lunch / picnic, or alternatively there is a Carmelite café at the Nunnery gallery. Please note that part of this workshop will take place outside, so bring some suncream or a hat if the weather looks sunny. 

Free - Book via Eventbrite

*All children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
