Workshop: Shape Shifters

Saturday, 19 May 2018
12 – 4pm

Free to ESP / £6.25 / £5 concessions

Join us at the Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park, for the first in the series of our Member Led Workshops.  Artist Laura Cooper will introduce her version of the Goethean Observation Method, and encourage us to consider our sensorial relationship with different species and plants.

Laura will lead us through a four part process where we will draw, describe, move and connect emotionally to our chosen subjects (plant, mineral or animal). The workshop will explore observation as a practice to hone and extend ones sensory perceptions, a process of attuning which by the end of the day will see us accumulate a collection of studies and subtle performative gestures.

ESP members will have their entrance to the wildlife park covered by Eastside Projects.

If you are not an ESP member you will need to pay the £6.25/£5 entrance fee.

To book a place please email Amelia.

Laura Cooper’s practice embraces live performance, video installation and drawing. Recent solo exhibitions include Softening The Grid, Milton Keynes Arts Centre; Nomadic Glow, Centro ADM Mexico City; Soft Revolutions, Space In Between Gallery, London. She co-directed the artist run project space Global Committee with artist Ian Giles in New York from 2014-16. www.lauracooper.co.uk
