Inspired by the exhibitions taking place in the gallery, participants will create their own artwork, using various mediums, which will be displayed on the Fruit Factory Gallery.
For the first half of the Spring programme, participants will approach experimental drawing, designing playful hairstyles and wigs with inspiration from futurism and Sci-fi with found materials.
For the second half of the Spring programme, participants will be involved in producing portraits, these can be self-portraits, other participants or friends and family. They will be encouraged to use different materials to construct multi-layered works that allow them to expand their horizons of drawing.
Results for the workshops will be put on display on the brand new Fruit Factory Gallery on the Ground floor.
Humber Street Gallery is a contemporary art space nestled in the heart of the city’s Fruit Market cultural quarter. Housed in a former fruit warehouse, the gallery will showcase the best in contemporary visual arts from the shocking to the sublime. The gallery seeks to generate debate, push boundaries, encourage new ways of thinking and inspire with a packed programme designed to appeal to those both familiar and not so familiar with the arts.
