EVENT: HOUSE OF DREAMS: WORKSHOP WITH ARTIST SALLY KINDBERG
DATE: 25th October 2023 - 25th October 2023
TIME: 2PM - 5PM
VENUE: Wynter Room
ARTIST/S: SALLY KINDBERG
WORKSHOP LEADER/S: SALLY KINDBERG
Join acclaimed artist/author Sally Kindberg and have fun filling your House of Dreams with images and stories, encouraged by Sally’s live drawing and visual prompts. You may be inspired by hearing bird and fish music played on a Triola as well as a recording of eighteenth-century organ music.
The House of Dreams is inspired by Swedenborg’s Summerhouse in Sweden, where he enjoyed playing music, wrote some of his inspirational books and planned his beautiful garden.
Each participant will be given printed templates of the House of Dreams to fill with their images, to eventually cut out and fold into a free-standing house and garden.
ABOUT SALLY KINDBERG
Sally has drawn comic strips for a four-book Bloomsbury series, including the Comic Strip History of Space. As her childhood ambition to be an astronaut has not (yet) been realised, she explored the outer galaxies by drawing them. She is the author/illustrator of Bloomsbury’s Draw It! series, including Draw It! London, all about one hundred wonders to discover and draw in the capital. During her time as a travel writer, Sally wrote and illustrated a regular column for the Independent on Saturday, sailed on a Tall Ship to Lisbon, and attended Elf School in Iceland. She is currently working on a book in comic strip form, has investigated and drawn the story of gold for the Bank of England Museum, made comic strips for CBBC’s Life Babble, and is the curator of a Museum of Dust, which includes samples from the Great Wall of China and Dr. Who’s Tardis.
