Suitable for practicing artists at any stage of development, creating in any format, willing to share something of themselves and their output with honesty and humour.
Over the two days Emma will introduce a series of practical tools with which to unpack, reflect upon and repack your art practice. By the end of the course, you will have a deeper understanding of what it is you do and why you do it. You will be able to talk with more fluidity about your output, ride the ups and downs of fluctuating motivation and feel more confident about managing your own development going forward.
About: Emma Gregory
Emma trained as a printmaker in the 80s, worked in dance and theatre in the 90’s, made her way back to print in the ‘noughties’. In 2014, Emma began investigating other artists and, specifically, the structures and tools they used to support their artistic development post MA level. The following year she created a course for her peer group – Press Play, CPD for Artists, hosted by Spike Print Studios. She has been gathering research to feed the course, whilst leading it, ever since. Her training is consistently well reviewed, and has been described by participants as ‘play with serious intent…rigorous…sensitive’. She continues to make and show her own work: writing; drawing; printing; ceramics and video. In her teaching, as with everything she does, collaboration is key.
Emma has worked for the National Theatre, The Hayward, Whitechapel, The Bluecoat as a freelance educator.
The course price includes all materials and catering.
Courses will be held at UWE Bristol. The course is limited to a maximum of 6 participants, please sign up early to secure your place.
