POSTPONED - Skin Deep Selfie - Creative Workshop

POSTPONED

We have postponed additional events for Skin Deep due to the Coronavirus and will reschedule this workshop later this spring/summer

The exhibition will be on at Berrington Hall while the venue remains open. Please visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/berrington-hall for up-to-date information.

Jamila Walker and Emily Wilkinson, from Elixir Arts, will run a free drop-in workshop based on collage and simple embroidery techniques to create unique, powerful and playful artworks with you, inspired by Oliver Jones' work in the Skin Deep exhibition.

Using images from magazines and pictures (as an optional extra, you can bring along your own self-portraits), together you will create embroidered montages, suggesting the stitching and markings from plastic surgery in a playful way. The artists will help you explore self-image, colourfully and creatively.

Participants are welcome to add an ID tag to their work with their name, age and favourite body part (optional). 

Feel free to share the work you create on social media with hashtag #SkinDeepMeadowArts to create an online gallery (tag in @MeadowArts and @NTBerrington if you like).

National Trust admission fees apply on entry to the property. Free entry for NT members, click here for ticket prices for non-members.
