An invitation to a series of artist-led workshops
Digital Culture & Digital Creativity - an invitation to a series of artist-led workshops
As part of a year-long series of events run by the Centre for Visual Cultures Dr Ruth Hemus is pleased to offer a set of three creative workshops, to postgraduate students in the first instance.
In these sessions run by the artist Vaia Paziana you will have the opportunity to explore connections between digital art and ‘handmade craft work.’ Theoretical, contextual and practical input from Vaia will enable you to create and share your own piece of digital work. No prior experience or specific skills are required. The workshops are free of charge.

- session 1: introduction + plaiting and weaving a digital self (including what Sadie Plant's book Zeros + Ones has got to do with it) + some ideas for the group to start looking for inspiration.
- session 2: exploring defragmenting, isolating, rebuilding and mirroring + looking into use of editing tools.
- session 3: ways of presenting your digital art work and sharing with the group.
Places are inevitably limited and MUST be booked in advance. Please sign up only if you can attend all three workshops.
RSVP in the first instance to the organiser Dr Ruth Hemus (email@example.com).
Vaia Paziana is a visual artist, creative enabler and community artist based in London. Her personal work is centred around internal conflict and restrictions and its impact on our lives. Visual arrangements vary from narrative staged observations to transforming objects into abstract images or combining analogue mixed media with digital art forms.
Vaia and Ruth Hemus have been working together on ways of making the creative work of early 20th century avant-garde women relevant and accessible in the 21st century. Previous projects include a workshop at Tate Exchange and participation in Instant City Reloaded. Their collaborative work is currently on show at The Hatton Gallery Newcastle.
