Event Description

This workshop shows how to generate your own forms of writing through experimentation. You will use mark making, obliteration and the fine art of gestural scribbling to create textures and the appearance of text – but a text which is abstract. Abstract forms of writing like Asemic writing can be used as an element in paintings and drawings as well as stand on their own as complete works of art. These processes can free you to be playful in making marks and help you to discover the joy of experimenting with inexpensive and unusual tools and materials. Bring along eight to ten words from a poem or prose piece. These will form the basis for some of the writing. Suitable for beginners.
