Woad workshop & Repeat Depictions

Last week we said goodbye to our two artists in residence Chris Cooper & Lisa Muten who have been with us since May. On Thursday we hosted an evening of discussion, artist tours and the wide ranging work produced over the course of the residency. It has been wonderful to see their fresh and collaborative approach developing in our in house studio space. Chris & Lisa chose to explore their individual and unique experiences of working in the building through a series of artistic conversations which have manifested themselves in drawing, installation, sculpture and audio and visual pieces . Chris is a young artist with autism so chose to explore the way in which his condition effects his experience of the architecture and atmosphere of the Kentish Town Health Centre. Their work can be seen on line here.

In addition to our evening events we also regularly host free workshops and this Monday was no different with a Plant Dye Workshop being led by artist Deisa Centazzo. Deisa has been growing some wonderful plants in our garden which can be harvested to produce natural dye. On Monday Deisa arrived early to pick the leaves of the Woad patch in the Well – Beeing Garden before laying out the table for the workshop.

The afternoon saw some delicate designs and colours produced from grass green through to deep blue. In September we will be hosting another such workshop so keep your eyes peeled as spaces are limited.


My Year With Meryl: Adaptation (2002)

For the first time since she started making movies, Meryl took a hiatus from film acting. She wasn’t gone too long—Music of the Heart opened in late 1999, and she shot Adaptation in early 2001, a year and a half before it was released—but any Meryl fan will tell you that a year without her in a movie is never a good one. 988 more words
