Touch: Reflections on Making
Dates: 10 Dec 2020 - 10 Dec 2020
When you were a child did you have a curious mind? As you ventured into an art gallery and you read the sign ‘Please do not touch’, did you feel compelled to touch it regardless of the warning? If so, this demonstrates your vivid imagination as you were caught up in the piece of art.
Now as an adult, you are the artist and you have a fascination with how art works developed by the touch of hand.
This Thursday 10th December 2020 between the hours of 9am till 7pm you are invited to an online event entitled:- ‘Touch - Reflections on Making.’
The event is primarily for makers, designers and artists to come together and explore the importance of touch in making and beyond, hosted by Crafts Council & the Centre for Fine Print Research.
Prior to the Thursday event comes a social networking opportunity on Wednesday 9th December from 5-7pm.
Upon attending this event there are a series of questions for you to consider:-
- How do those who touch in their practice respond to the ‘new reality’?
- How can touch be simulated or evoked through digital means?
- How has our changed experience of touching over the past year challenged our haptic engagement?
The main event will consist of reflective, practical and social sessions that are designed to inspire you and connect with your ideal peer group.
Tickets cost £12 per person and are available to book via Eventbrite:-
In addition to booking you will also find information about the following:-
- What to expect
- Maker Breakfast
- Where is it
In craft and research practice to touch is often to make and to know. Find out more about this fascinating area of artistic interest by attending this inspiring event.
