Expect the Unexpected with Gaye Nieuwenhof
October 12 2023 @ 9:30 AM - October 14 2023 @ 3:30 PM$300.00
Please note change of venue and dates.
Gaye Nieuwenhof has been creating and exhibiting her work for many years along with teaching various techniques to help inspire others to accept the unexpected. Her inspiration is always the environment and although the imagery is abstract in nature, that echo remains. The alchemy of materials and how they can be utilised to produce art has always fascinated her. This can come about in many forms and sees prosaic materials being used for purposes for which they were never intended. Texture, tone and line always appear in her work which creates visual excitement.
She is a collector of “What Ifs”. Her earliest art making was in Ceramics and Watercolour which have evolved into painting, printmaking and mixed-media. Always searching for the unexpected and accepting that not all work will be pleasing, but forever learning from the experience.
Expect the Unexpected
A mixed-media workshop on both fabric and paper with collage and some slow stitching. A Gel plate will be utilised in ways that may not have been experienced before. Prepare to be challenged to free your inner critic and celebrate your visual voice. You will learn to recognise what it is that you really want to express and how that can change when you are free to experiment. This workshop is about letting go of control to experience the joy of learning something new about both materials and yourself. Suitable for both beginners and experienced alike.
