A Postcard Home - a collage workshop

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

WHAT DOES HOME MEAN TO YOU? Somewhere to hang your hat and practice your DIY? Is it a castle, a caravan, a secret hideaway or a dot on the map? Is it real or imagined? Somewhere or someone? Perhaps home for you is a memory, the place to which you long to return. Or is it just a convenient storage space for your peculiar hairbrush collection? Whatever ‘home’ means to you, we’d like to know about it. A POSTCARD HOME was a collage workshop held by Graham Rawle at the Victoria and Albert Museum as part of their Friday Late – 'Home Sweet Home' evening. Using words or pictures cut or torn from the magazines provided, participants were invited to create a postcard collage of their idea of ‘home’. They could then take part in the ‘Home Exchange’ programme. By submitting their finished creation for display during the event and filling in a self-addressed envelope, the workshop later mailed them a randomly chosen original art postcard created by one of the other workshop contributors.
