Totem Explorer 2-day Art Workshop with Nicholas Vaughan

Nicholas Vaughan is an artist with a singular vision and strident political views. Since November of last year, his exhibition at BasementArtsProject has been stirring debate amongst visitors with its analysis of the post-referendum United Kingdom.

On Saturday 12 & 19 February 2022 Nicholas Vaughan will be running a series of collage workshops.

BasementArtsProject invites you to join us live and in-person with the artist at ‘The Basement’ between 9am-12pm and online between 2-5pm on both days. You can join just one or as many of these sessions as you want by signing up using this Eventbrite link.

Taking inspiration from Vaughan’s mixed media work ‘Windrush Scandal Shrunken Brains‘ on display as part his current exhibition at BasementArtsProject, the artist invites you to take part in a 2-day workshop that will allow you to explore your cultural heritage through the creation of your own Totem Explorer, a representation of ancestry and memory.

Participants will be assisted in developing their own version of this, inviting you to bring along copies of old family photos or other images sourced online or from printed media. Other material will be available on the day to complete what you bring along.

If you are attending the online sessions a print-from-home kit will be sent 2 days before the event, to help you get started.

A newspaper will then be produced that will feature his own work alongside all of those who participate in the workshops. This will then be distributed online and locally.

My Kingdom For A Croissant’ continues until Sunday 20th February
