Join local artist Emily Bowers in collaboration with Art Pop-Up for a series of free and fun creative workshops, talks and artist-led walks as part of her artist residency at Deeping Lakes. It will also be a chance to learn about the wildlife living at the reserve, why it is such a vital space and to experience how Emily works as an artist and illustrator.
Informed by her time investigating the Deeping Lakes area throughout July, there is a range of free art workshops, walks and talks across Deeping in August. There’s an open invitation to local people to join these events and be part of the creative journey.
These sessions kick off with an Artist Talk on Tuesday 3 August at the Priory Church Hall garden 7pm-8pm. During her talk Emily will be sharing the development of her practice and what motivates her as an artist and illustrator. She will discuss her inspirations and some of the techniques and methods she uses to make work. Her talk will take a peek at her research and works in progress for the Deeping Lakes residency.
Then there are a number of workshops for both adults and children taking place at Deeping Library check out the digital flyer below for all timings and dates. With each workshop focusing on a different theme such as wetland birds or wildflowers, you can come along and make your very own artwork. Emily will then transform these community works into a large scale piece, bringing everyone's creativity together with her own.
