An exhibition of paintings, laser cut reliefs and books inspired by experiences of walking and working in the business park and the surrounding edgelands of Shrewsbury.
23rd May 2017, 17:30 – 21:00
All welcome (Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult)
£7 per person
As part of the exhibition at the Hive, I will be running a workshop which will give some insight into my methods of working and invite you to try some ideas for yourself.
Join me on a journey of discovery from the gallery to unknown destinations in Shrewsbury. Gather materials and inspiration then return to base to create artworks. Open to everyone and no particular artistic ability is required. The workshop will encourage new ways of looking and spontaneity in putting ideas together.
The walk will last 30-40 minutes, brisk paced over urban terrain, possibly including steps but no climbing.
See The Hive website for further information and booking.
