Part of this workshop will happen outdoors and involves some foraging and gathering. Wear and bring sunscreen and hats.

Art with Youth Textile, Sound and Digital Processing

This workshop is a collaboration with Yellowhouse Art Centre’s ongoing Art with Youth Program. Facilitated by Alyssa and Wayne of THRUMS (performing live Sun Aug 13 at 1:15pm), this hands-on workshop is for all youth 7 and up who are interested in playing with perspective. Once you look closer, where can you go?

Participants will forage for natural materials to be carded in with fleece gathered on Gabriola Island. The act of foraging, carding, and blending will be listened to, processed, and digitally transformed along with other found sounds. We’ll learn about looking and listening closely to turn these sounds into music that reflects your unique perspective on the world and your environment.

Feel free to bring things you’ve foraged before! Think: feathers, twigs, vegetation, whatever you’ve discovered in your own spaces.

We're grateful to collaborate and produce on the shared, stolen, unceded, ancestral and traditional territories of Penelakut, Lamalcha, Hwitslum and other Hul’qumi’num speaking peoples, as well as the ceded territories of Tsawwassen First Nation, on what is now known as Galiano Island, British Columbia. We recognize the complex impacts that hosting settlers and non-settlers has on the Indigenous land and peoples of this area, and we aim to be responsible and accountable for these impacts and our footprint—whether cultural, environmental or social.
