This weekend we came together at The Whiskey Bond in Glasgow. Kindly hosting us were Agile City, a non-profit community interest company based in Speirs Locks, North Glasgow.
A weekend of workshops began with Jamie Crewe and their 5 techniques of working. 💪 'In this artist's talk I speak about five creative techniques embodied in my recent practice. These are titled: ‘Milk, Curdling, Mould’, ‘High Walls’, ‘Embrace and Shove’, ‘Cacophony’, and ‘Daphnê’. Identified across many different works, these techniques thread through my practice, appearing repeatedly as intellectual, practical, processual, or instinctual gestures. Through reading my work in this way I try to draw a non-chronological portrait of my practice; I encourage sensitivity to recurrence, and to the folding together of thought and practice.'
This was followed by a workshop led by our own Harriet Morley, and ending with a Sunday afternoon zine making workshop. Check out our zinehere. Thank you for having us Glasgow. It was truly magical!
A special thank you to SET, who hosted us for the first class of 2019 meet up in London. We unpicked 'structurelessness', delved into each other's varied practices and sewed the seeds for some exciting plans in Glasgow in just over a month's time. Thank you to London's art scene for being so welcoming and hospitable!
“I joined SOTD to be part of an accessible learning platform that can offer me routine and confidence in making art. Prior to SOTD I've spent most of my time playing #bikepolo; a mixed gender sport with DIY roots played worldwide. These days friendship, nurture and scoring goals define polo for me. Having started SOTD, I’m excited to be welcomed by a similar generosity, ambition and fun that made me fall in love with polo. Hopefully the two can meet at some point xoxox.”
