Camilla Stacey is an artist, curator and facilitator based in Old Bank Studios, Penryn. For the last year and a half she has been running a project called MakeStuff/DrinkStuff offering a series of workshops where people can come together to learn new skills and share knowledge. These workshops are strongly based in the contemporary art/craft sector as that is where her own personal practice lies.
For Penryn Arts Festival Camilla will be researching and recording makers based within Penryn parish boundary and producing a handmade book that documents these makers. She will be using as many resources found within Penryn as possible, with input and assistance from residents to create the final book. The finished Penryn Makers Directory will be a ‘time capsule’ of Penryn in 2017, and for this reason it will be donated to Penryn Museum on completion, becoming part of their collection. This handmade edition will be supplemented with a digital version, and also an online skills inventory.
Using simple techniques we will be exploring basic weaving as part of Camilla Stacey’s ‘Penryn Makers Directory’ project for Penryn Arts Festival. Please bring any supplies you particularly want to work with (threads and yarns), however there will be plenty to go around.
This workshop will include tea & coffee and vegan cake, participants are encouraged to bring a sharing dish to contribute to a pot luck supper. Suggested donation for workshop materials etc £5, payable on the night.
