Sunday 6th May 2 – 4pm.
Led by artist Kathryn John
An experimental walking and mapping workshop. Together we will follow the choreography of Bristol’s hidden and visible waterways. Flowing where they guide us, we will find a new understanding of this place. What do you notice? A fresh perspective. Through experimental mapping techniques – using homemade organic inks and found mark making tools – we will record the landscapes we encounter. Meet at Brunswick Club. Bring your curiosity, and (not to sound like your Mum) some sensible clothes for walking in the British weather. Those with limited mobility welcome. Pace will be set by individual.
Kathryn is an artist, writer, sign writer, performer and facilitator. Her process led practice explores the act of writing, walking, place and the space between experience and articulation. After studying Art History (Aberystwyth University 2006) and training to teach Art History in Further Education (Cardiff University 2008) Kathryn began work as a community arts facilitator with a focus on well being. She has worked as a facilitator with Light Box: The Happiness Project (Bristol) and Arnolfini (Bristol) Dove Arts (Somerset), among many other education and arts settings. Her 2014 site-specific installation ‘Unravelled By Hand’ (Fairfield Road, Bristol) inspired her to leave the city to explore off-grid and community living in the UK. She has trained in traditional signwriting skills and is currently incorporating these skills into her wider practice, along with making her own writing materials. Kathryn is currently collaborating on WILDEDGES – a site-specific year-long project in a walled orchard in Street, Somerset.
