Art Residency Participation

Dear precious woman,

after the successful completion of the first Yoniverse and overwhelming positive feedback from participating women and exhibition visitors I like to invite you to become visible and discover your own power in this process.

If you identify as female I would like to invite you to participate in this unique and powerful piece of work in the time between 4th – 24th September 2018. In this time I will provide slots of individual sessions averaging 2,5 hours for a woman to pose their yoni/vulva for being painted in the medium of watercolour.

Bangle making workshop

Sunday 9 September
10:00 am - 3:00 pm

***also on Sunday 25th November ***

Rather like the stacking rings workshop, you will learn how to make at least 3 contrasting silver bangles. You will measure, cut, solder, texture and finish your bangles – each one made from different shapes of silver wire. You will be using hammers , punches (including letters and numbers if you would like to personalise them)or a rolling mill, to shape and pattern your bangles, then given a choice of finishes. There will be extra materials available to purchase on the day should you wish to make more than 3 bangles.
