Queer Hearts Awards Workshop

Artists Ladypat and Boogaloo Stu invite all queer islanders and allies to join them for a fun, celebratory, feel-good arty-party experience, to make a collage artwork with a special message.
Queer Hearts Awards is a drop-in workshop, so you can turn up and join in when it suits you; no creative or art skills are required to participate. You’ll be welcomed by Stu and Pat into the gallery space at Ventnor Exchange, where their Queer Hearts exhibition is currently on display. The space will be set up with tables and chairs, along with all the arts and crafts materials you’ll need to create an artwork.
It will be a relaxed, fun and creative experience. Stu and Pat will initially ask you to think about a queer person or queer ally who has made a positive impact on your life in some way. This could be a friend, a family member, a teacher, a pop star, an actor, a social media influencer; anyone who has made an emotional connection that has benefited you. Once you’ve decided who your artwork is for, you’ll have up to a few hours to create your work of art, including a message underneath the artwork about who it is dedicated to.
In their own work, both Stu and Pat make collages using a mixture of hand-drawn and digital techniques; in the workshop you’ll learn about these methods and can make use of some of them to create your artwork. There will be plenty of art materials to hand, including fuzzy felt, with your hosts on hand to help!
No need to book just come along 🙂
