“SIGHTLESS SELFIE” WORKSHOP WITH VIPOO SRIVILASA
Sunday 10 November 10am – 1pm
Led by artist Vipoo Srivilasa, this workshop uses the selfie as a starting point to create a self-portrait in clay. The workshop begins with participants taking a selfie, capturing both their attitude and personality in one frame. Under Vipoo’s guidance, you will then be asked to remember your selfie and attempt to re-create it in clay. As an extra challenge, you’ll be offered an eye mask (optional) to create your clay selfie by touch, rather than sight; maximising the sense of touch and awareness of the clay texture. The finished bas-relief clay ‘selfies’ will form an installation in the workshop space and can then be taken home. The installation offers a chance to view unique pieces created by the audience.
