  • In Bristol - Festival of Making


    Event Date: 29th September 2018

    In Bristol Studio is very excited to announce its ‘Festival of Making’, a multi-disciplinary open studio event celebrating the creativity of studio residents and the local community.

    The Festival is FREE to enter, though you can book in for one of our taster workshops if you fancy trying something new, all workshops are listed on the In Bristol workshops page

    For families there will be lots of free creative play: pavement chalks, giant building blocks, den building and collaborative weaving projects to get involved in. There will also be a drop in tote bag illustration workshop from 1-4pm at the cost of £3.00.

    The theme for this hands on open studio event is ‘COTTON’ Inspired by the building we now work in, and its history as part of the Great Western Cotton Factory. Studio members taking part are responding to this in a multitude of ways, exploring history, tools, objects, people and processes.

    The studio will be filled with a showcase of new work by our varied and talented artist and maker residents.

    Among the work on display will be three PARTICIPATE commissions, facilitated by studio members working with groups from our local community. These will be supported by Pangea Sculpture Centre.

    We also have eight COLLABORATE commissions – work made especially for the event by studio members combining their skills and practices to work together. We are encouraging our artists to work outside of their normal practice, to share skills, and to be as experimental as they like!

    Tea and cake refreshments in the yard!

    All the commissions for new work and participatory workshops are thanks to funding from Arts Council England. This incredible organisation makes an unrivalled contribution towards creative professional development, whilst encouraging wider involvement in, and appreciation of the Arts.

    The artists are also supported by the Up Our Street Endowment Fund, a grant for residents and groups helping deliver projects in the local area.

    In Bristol Studio and its residents can’t wait to see you at The Festival of Making on the 29th of September!

    Look out for more details in our blog, and on Facebook and Instagram.
