In the age of screen-gazing we owe it to ourselves to make room for working with our hands.
This 8 – 9 October ICA hosts ART FUSION, a participative art project to get you drawing, lino carving and printmaking. This free-to-attend taster event is for young and old, whatever your level of experience.
Within your 1½hour session each participant will be guided to create their own tea-drinking inspired design and print this on 2 gift cards to take away for your own use. Novices will be taught how to safely handle sharp carving tools and basic lino cutting skills. You will carve your own 10cm square piece of lino and print your own cards.
On 10 October the two artists will print up a 20-meter-long frieze using permutations of all the individual lino plates together with their own unifying designs. The frieze will be permanently installed in ICA’s dining room this autumn.
ART INFUSION is part of ICA’s TEA CULTURE project which starts on Sunday 7 October with a talk on Chinese purple clay teapots. Click here to book your tickets.
This ART INFUSION project is supported by the Islington Community Festivals fund and is also part of ICA’s Realising Effective Community project supported by the Big Lottery fund.
