Bereavement and Loss workshop hosted by Art Hive
On Saturday 8th November 2014
From 12 until 5pm
At Nest Space (opposite Gamestop), Mitchell St, Clonmel
The purpose of the workshop is to make something beautiful and evocative as a positive reminder (aide-mémoire) of someone who has passed away. This could be a collage, print, textile, a time capsule, or something 3 dimensional (shrine like). It could be a lengthy process, so participants should make sure they give themselves time within the workshop to achieve a finished piece.
When a loved one dies they leave behind so many
physical things. It is often difficult to know what to do with
everything. In time it becomes easier to part with some of these, but there are often a few things we would like to keep forever, as well as photographs.
It is most important to bring mementos of that
person. These can be photographs (which can be photo-copied on site), articles of clothing, pictures from magazines or newspapers, small things; anything that you associate with that person. Give yourself time to choose what to bring. If you want your piece in a frame, please bring one with you. Charity shops and Euro shops are good sources.
Materials and facilities provided: some basic including
sewing machines, a photocopier, glue, paper, background cloth, and printing equipment.
The workshop is for anyone and everyone. Under 16s must be accompanied by an appropriate adult. Everyone and the objects they bring will be treated with the utmost respect.
The workshop is a free event.
