Part of The Big Open Book
ELIZABETH HAMMOND ONLINE
A wonderful FREE opportunity to explore the links between writing and drawing and to become part of the Big Open Book.
Artists Maija Liepins and Elizabeth Hammond present the Big Open Book, a library connections project for Andover and Romsey.
Join both artists Live on Zoom for a FREE ‘Writing and Drawing Together’ Event, 2.00 - 3.30pm on Sunday 10 April.
About the project:
links between the artists, the libraries and the participants, this
project consists of a series of workshops which will culminate in two
paper-based installations at Andover and Romsey libraries. Combining the
practices of drawing and writing this project will reveal the hidden
connections that are accessible to anyone in the threads and traces of
drawing and writing processes. These processes we will share with you so
you can experience your own meaningful connections. Through group
activities, a community dialogue will emerge and become a work of art.
Participants can take part in all activities and events free of charge.
This project is brought to you by Hampshire Libraries and Test Valley
Borough Council with funding from Arts Council England.
