Art Workshops

In October we hosted two workshops which enabled art students, mathematicians and the general public to enjoy the pleasure of colour and creation.

The first, ‘Alchemy and the Technologies of Ancient Paint Making’, was an open workshop for students at the Mathematical Institute and Ruskin School of Art. Introduced by Simon Periton, selected site wide artist for a series of public artworks at the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter and led by artist Nabil Ali, the workshop was part of a programme of workshops delivered by Modus Operandi in partnership with the Mathematical Institute and Ruskin School of Art.

The second over the weekend of 24 & 25 October was a family Drop-In Art Workshop where families and especially their children were encouraged to discover the creation and use of colour with artists Simon Periton, Nabil Ali and Vicky Vergou.

The workshops were supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England with generous support from the Pye Charitable Settlement.
