HOW TO… is a series of text based posters by amateur experts on subjects such as HOW TO… play, draw, make a film, join a group, collaborate, shoot video etc.
The posters are designed as a means for sharing knowledge and advice between workshop participants, and they come from sessions I have led with varied groups.
The first poster HOW TO… play was made with Lottie Child and a group of children at Chisenhale Gallery, and developed to make HOW TO… collaborate. Subsequent posters have been shown at Engage, Arnolfini, Bristol (HOW TO… make a film), Whitechapel Art Gallery (HOW TO… Greet) and at ongoing teaching sessions at Royal College of Art, Tate Gallery and elsewhere. HOW TO… Greet has been used as a participatory performance warm up by live artist Tom Marshman in Portugal and has been used as an inspiration point in schools workshops. Documentation of HOW TO...Greet is showing as part of a film in the Belonging Together display in the screening room at the Tate Modern Learning gallery from 19th May until August 2016.
HOW TO…draw was the result of a week long drawing workshop at Chisenhale Gallery with artists Lady Lucy, Lindsay Seers, Jonathan Houlding and Rod Mackenzie.
