Materiality: The Tactile Experience, Workshop with Cameron Taylor-Brown
All Levels | Supplies Required
Anni Albers said “our tactile experiences are elemental” and felt that the playful exploration of materials is essential to “regain a faculty that was once so naturally ours.” In this workshop, Cameron will provide a wide variety of materials – paper, cardboard, foil, sticks, buttons, pebbles, seeds, wire, fibers and more. We will, in Albers words, “group them, cut them, curl them, mix them, finally perhaps paste them, to fix in a certain order.” The resulting exploratory collage will revitalize our sense of touch and lead to a deeper appreciation for the elemental importance of materials as a starting point in any artistic medium. Supplies Included
This workshop includes the public talk Anni Albers: Life and Legacy.
