The Shadow Shop

Saturday, December 8
3:30-6:30pm | The Box Studio | $45

We’ll bring our overhead projectors and our collection of treasures— you bring your imagination! Together we will explore how imagery can spark and drive narratives as well as serve existing ones. Participants will generate new material as well as have the option of bringing in their own work. All material will be collaboratively staged.

We will experiment with the following tools:

  • Found objects

  • Wet matter: water, dye, soaps, and food.

  • Transparencies (images printed on transparent paper)

  • Framing

  • Negative space

  • Focus and depth of perspective

 

Collective Creation Intensive

Friday December 7 and Saturday December 8
10am-3pm | The Box Studio | $95

Challenge yourself to work collaboratively and think outside the box! Aimed at emerging artists, this is a peer-led workshop that provides participants with the studio space and tools to explore new ways of generating work. Augusto Bitter and Claren Grosz (Persephone, CHICHO) will lead participants through pair, group and solo exercises to build an interdisciplinary piece of their own devising. Both text-based and physical approaches will be used, so get ready to move and write! For the curious and trepidatious as well as the experienced and bold, creative souls of all disciplines/backgrounds are welcome— no experience required!

 

We have two options for enrolling in our workshops. Shoot us an email at pencilkitprod@gmail.com and let us know which workshop you’re interested in, or simply click the link below to pay online.

 

Past Workshops

Women's Collective Creation Intensive

The Women’s Collective Creation Intensive is a peer-led workshop that provides a safe space for emerging women artists to connect and collaborate, fostering an environment of support rather than competition. Participants had the opportunity to create new devised work, perform, and connect with established Toronto professionals.
