In this workshop, we’ll each choose a passion to study: Fear, Rage, Love, Jealousy, Joy, Lust, Greed, Hate, Desire, Vanity, Hope, Regret, Melancholy, Despair (etc). We’ll engage with its energy, colour and form, its dynamic and where we feel its force in the body. We’ll write it. Draw it. Move it. And make a hat of it – Le Chapeau de Passion.
Tools to bring: coloured pens/paint/conte, paper, glue (glue-gun if you have one) other joining materials like string, paper clips, Sellotape/masking/parcel tape and any bits you have knocking around. For example plastic (plastic bags, packaging, containers), string, wooden skewers, polystyrene, cardboard. Give yourself a good bundle of stuff to work with.
