An opportunity to forage, collect, use everyday found objects and trial collage, exploring the perimeters of construction, installation and sculpture.

A series of morning workshops that embrace the innovative methods of construction found in the work of James Capper. Participants will learn about the use of colour, form and scale via grouping and accumulation. The workshops cater to participants of all abilities and take place in our light and airy Fine Art Studio.

Looking at the practice of James Capper as a springboard alongside the works of artists ranging from Duchamp, Jim Dine, John Stezaker, Kurt Schwitters, Richard Long and Sarah Lucas, with the art movement Arte-Povera, the three week programme will focus upon using our everyday, leftover objects to make new art forms and structures.

Tutor Alex Roberts is a British artist that lives and works between Berlin and the UK. She is an artist who works with paint and translucence; addressing paintings’ surface and spatial depth. Testing the sliding scale of figuration and abstraction, her focus is how we perceive identity and change – encounters. Roberts completed her MAFA at Chelsea College of Arts, UAL, 2015. In 2016, Roberts joined The Transart Institute as an Artist Advisor, and is helping to establish a drawing programme about the figure, besides linking platforms of exchange with Drawing Projects UK.
