Half Term Family Workshop – Experimenting With Filmworkshop • 30 Oct 2018 – 31 Oct 2018
Explore the materiality of 16mm film; marking, scratching, drawing and manipulating it to produce colourful abstract images through a projector.
Join artist Chris Paul Daniels during October half term for a fun, hands on creative workshop inspired by LCD.
This is a great opportunity for families to get creative together during the half term week.
We will explore the materiality of 16mm film, marking, scratching, drawing and manipulating it in various ways before running the film through a projector and viewing the colourful abstract results.
Chris will bring objects such as mirrorballs and other reflective surfaces to make refracted lights and shapes.
The workshop will run twice:
Tuesday 30 October, 2.30pm – 5.30pm
Wednesday 30 October, 2.30pm – 5.30pm
Recommended age 5+, accompanied by an adult.
