ARTWORK SPOTLIGHT
fabric banners by Studio Workshop
created for the Eycott Project (June 19)

Studio Workshop created these beautiful fabric banners to be an outdoor location as part of a large scale performance at Eycott Hill nature reserve.

The group worked together to hand draw and colour in these pieces that depict the homes and places of work that are occupied by magical bird characters, whose stories were also performed by the group using puppets.

THROWBACK THURSDAY

China Poster, ink artwork created by Amber (Jul 18)

In 2018 Studio Arts, along with Access Arts in Dumfries (part of Turning Point Scotland), had a large scale exhibition in Tullie House of artwork inspired by Chinese artefacts, culture and creative techniques. The artwork used in the poster was created by Amber, member of all three studio programmes, after a skills workshop of Chinese calligraphy. This ink painting has great movement, texture and interesting abstract shapes to explore.

What's been your #peak2020 moment?

Mine was filming for a virtual school workshop & debating whether we needed to social distance from a puppet. Obviously puppets can't catch Covid, but the puppet was playing a human, and we had to set a good example for the children, so... 🤷‍♀️
