The Sunday Spot: Philippa Johnson

SUN 7, 14, 21 & 28 Feb, 2-4pm, CLORE STUDIO, FREE

Overview

Throughout February join artist Philippa Johnson to create an evolving, collaborative spacial collage in the Clore Studio. Starting with the walls in week one, we’ll be making wallpaper with unusual printing blocks. In week two the focus will be on the floors and creating a rug collage from tape, paper and other materials. The ceiling will be decorated in week three by creating hanging mobiles and lanterns. In the final week, all the elements will come together, and we’ll add shapes and furnishings into the room to create a layered collaborative installation. 

Philippa Johnson's work is about temporarily highlighting and altering found spaces or surfaces that are often overlooked, empty or redundant. Using pattern and drawing as an instinctive way to embellish and be involved with these spaces, she creates drawing-based installations, using materials that are equally overlooked or underestimated, such as whitewash, masking tape or paint stripper. 

Please note that you don’t have to attend all four sessions to take part. The Sunday Spot is an ongoing series of free, drop-in family activities which takes place every Sunday from 2-4pm, suitable for children aged 3-12 years. 

The first session on the 7 Feb will involve using paint, so wearing old clothes is advised.
