Winter Bones Workshop
A paper pulp painting workshop with a somatic component focused on sensing the living tissue of our bodies.
The workshop started off with a somatic process to awaken our systems and access the sensation of the material of our bodies, to prepare us for working with organic material, as well as a create a possible source of imagery for making a visual poem.
Participants were then lead through the process of transforming used paper, mixed with found plant materials, to create a pulp painting. Themes of bones, decomposition, digestion, cycles, subtle structure, and entanglement with the beauty in both living, decaying and ‘waste’ material.
