11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Youth 7 and up
Part of this workshop will happen outdoors and involves some foraging and gathering. Wear and bring sunscreen and hats.
The outdoor site is fully wheelchair accessible. The grounds are natural and the terrain somewhat rough. To access indoors there is a step up onto a short wooden deck and a lip to the door. Seating will be available.
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.
