Islanders are being invited to join artists Babs Gowan, Caz Underwood, Ian Whitmore, Hannah George and Carol Jaye to explore and celebrate Brading Roman Villa and East Wight… in clay, pencil and collage.
A free Wild About Wight arts workshop on Sunday 27th January is an opportunity to learn about the Villa’s history and its landscapes through art, with plenty of time to explore more throughout the day.
This is the grand finale workshop in a fantastic year-long Wild About Wight arts project, exploring the natural and built heritage of East Wight.
Over the months, Wild About Wight’s Island artists have been helping hundreds of people take a fresh look at familiar landscapes and wildlife, streetscapes and architecture through art. Each artist has brought art techniques to outdoor and indoor pop-up studios ranging from woodlands and beaches to bird hides, barns and heritage buildings. The results are a season by season celebration of place by all sorts of people, through art, words and sound!
The event, which will take place between 10:00-13:00, is suitable for adults and children over 8. All children must be accompanied by an adult. No experience is needed and all materials and entry fee are provided.
Booking is essential as places are limited. To book, email [email protected] or call Vectis’s Sarah and Jen on 01983 525985.
Make sure to arrive on the dot ready to start at 10:00!
All the artwork made throughout the project will be displayed in our Wild About Wight exhibition at Quay Arts beginning on Saturday 16th February.
