Cas Holmes artist workshop – Saturday 25 November 2023
Our first artist workshop of the 2023/24 academic year is with textile artist Cas Holmes on Saturday 25 November 2023.
For UBATO members Cas’s workshop is one of two options included in membership for the 2023/24 academic year – if you would like to attend both artist workshops we have a limited number of tickets that can be purchased for £60. Non-members are also able to purchase tickets for Cas’s workshop. .Participants in this workshop will also receive a free copy of the Cas Holmes catalogue which retails at £8.
Cas Holmes is interested in the liminal, ‘in-between’ spaces connecting land, people and place. Trained in fine art, her work combines mixed media with found materials and stitch and is best described as ‘painting with cloth’.
The focus of the workshop is working to the theme of ‘improvised sketchbooks. There will be no prescribed outcome expected from the workshop – the emphasis will be on the process of creating, responding and reflecting in an evolving ‘sketchbook’ format.
For the workshop Cas wants the emphasis to be on the ‘why?’ as an artist, as well as introducing some of her ‘How?’ techniques and processes which you can experience independently and then consider how you might introduce in the classroom.
