Creative Futures: Creative Methods Lab: Women & Domesticity What’s your Perspective?

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


Workshop Content and theme:
I propose a practical workshop inviting responses and contributions to my collaborative practice-based research project, which invites personal perspectives on the theme of women and domesticity to be stitched upon a duster. It would be practical, drawing-based and narrative-inspired.

To date the workshops have been predominantly statement-led but for this event I would like to build upon a successful workshop that I ran at the Marks Make Meaning event at Grand Parade in March 2018, inviting participants to consider and then to respond to the domestic theme by drawing with thread upon the duster, with the duster itself positioned as an object for contemplation and focus. Activities would also practically respond to the theory of constructing narrative devices to express female experience and emotion (for example: Haug 1987 and Crawford, J et al. 1992)

Participant Opportunities:
The workshop will offer participants the opportunity to create drawings with both pencil and paper, and with duster, needle and thread, in response to a group-led discussion with accompanied readings. Conscious investigation of the duster through touch, smell and mark-making, along with the contemplation of personal domestic narratives through stitch, would remain a focus throughout.
