Join artist Sarah Pimienta (Director at Social Fabric) and artist educator Lala Thorpe for a hands on, drop-in workshop inspired by Tschabalala Self’s new exhibition at Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art.

Tschabalala Self constructs exaggerated depictions of female bodies collaging a combination of sewn, printed and painted materials, traversing different artistic and craft traditions. Using printmaking and a wide range of materials, have fun as you join in with the creation of a dynamic collaborative collage.

The workshop will take place in the Talks & Discussions Theatre where you are welcome to drop-in at any time between 12pm-3pm. Family friendly and suitable for all ages, all materials will be provided. Don’t forget, children under 12 can visit the Fair for free.
