Come experience the process behind creating abstract art by experimenting with different materials and diving into the unknown. This workshop is about improvisation through free movements of the body and self-awareness. Tune in to your own feelings and let them guide your creation process to produce an abstract piece reflective of yourself at this very moment in time.
This event is part of the Bleur [INSERT FEELING HERE] campaign, an artist reflection on chasing our own emotions, the highs and the lows and making space for everything in between.
Price includes all materials needed for the workshop and a £10 canvas, refreshments and delicious snacks to fuel your creativity. Workshop participants will receive a 10% voucher from our partners Jackson’s Art Supplies and a free totes bag.
As with all creative experimentations, things can get a bit messy so make sure you wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting paint on. Open to anyone, no previous experience required. Over 18s only.
About the artist
Oscar T Wilson is an abstract artist with a multi-disciplinary practice spanning from painting, sculpture and cinematography. Raised in a family of artists, art has always been inherent to Oscar’s life and creating for him is as natural as breathing or walking. His practice is deeply influenced by his South London roots, his own life experiences of growing up in a squat house environment and the sense of freedom it gave him. Raw and powerful, Oscar’s work is a post-modern critique of social constructs, calling into question accepted truths and offering an unexpected alternative viewpoint. Performance and art go hand and in hand and the creative process in Oscar’s pieces is often the end itself. At the heart of his work lies a truly philanthropist endeavour of showing compassion and self-awareness as essential features of humankind.
How to find us
We are tucked away in the Old Biscuit Factory, a historical site which was once the heart of Bermondsey.
The entrance to the Biscuit Factory is at the junction between Webster Road and Clements Road. Search for the sadly permanently closed Shortwave cafe on Google maps, the entrance to our building is the opposite side of the parking lot. Go through the gated entrance as if you were local and look for the white double doors with a staircase at the end of the parking lot. Keep going up the stairs until the very last floor (those stairs never get easier). You will find Bleur Studios at the end of the corridor, Room 308.
We are very sorry but there is no accessible access to Bleur Studios at present. If you would like to attend, please get in touch with us.
We may capture some pictures and video of art in the making during the workshop. By registering to the workshop, you confirm that you are happy for us to use this content for our distribution channels.
