Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th October 2014
‘Join a two-day workshop led by artist Shelly Goldsmith, taking the work of artist Richard Tuttle as a starting point for a series of presentations, discussions and practical activities exploring textiles as material. Tuttle came to prominence in the 1960s as part of a generation of Post-Minimalist artists and is known for his delicate, small scale works and use of everyday, ephemeral materials. His work has often been described as being in a state of ‘in between’, moving between sculpture, painting, poetry and drawing, avoiding categorisation. Coinciding with theRichard Tuttle: The Weave of Textile Languageexhibition at Whitechapel Gallery this autumn as well as his new commission in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, this workshop invites you to explore and engage with this practice also tracing Tuttle’s interest and use of textile in his 50-year career. By exploring structure, texture, form and colour through textiles and fibres, this is a unique opportunity to develop your own ideas and practical skills in this field’.
Documentary images and more details of the workshop will be posted very soon.
