Open spaces

Open spaces like a theatre stage or the outdoors often help prompt inspirational work - and so it proved today in Fermyn Woods, near Brigstock.

An exercise in mark making involving clay balls thrown from some distance; charcoal drawing using a long stick; burning paper, and a collage of natural materials produced some great work.

All done by some more artists-in-the-making- just like those starting on their training for No Fixed Abode next week. These teenagers were from William Knibb Complimentary Education Centre.

The workshop was part of series I was running with my artist colleague Liam Hadjipetrou in association with Fermynwoods Contemporary Art Centre

The William Knibb teens are too young to take part in No Fixed Abode but we're hoping they can come to a performance and Lisa from The Core has kindly offered us some space for a special art/theatre workshop.
