Carving Other Ways
Workshop for Families
RSVP below for this in-person event.
Join STUART artist and publisher Rose Nordin to explore the possibilities of collective play and imagination to identify obstacles and imagine other ways to around them.
Learn how to design simple stamps for printing by hand, and embark on a storytelling journey together. Collectively, we will make our own newspaper which will be placed in The Mosaic Rooms Bookshop to inspire others.
This workshop takes inspiration from Jara van Teeffelen’s How to Regain Freedom (Durable Discussions, 2022), to learn how we can create ‘design tools’ from everyday life and limitations that spark playful dreaming and offer alternative perspectives. These prompts invite us to think with imagination about our surroundings and to find new ways to express our ideas.
Rose Nordin activates Tools for Solidarity; an interactive play space co-designed by RESOLVE Collective and children from Earl’s Court Youth Club and three school groups at the A.M. Qattan Foundation in Ramallah, Palestine.
This workshop will be developed into a lesson plan, a self-guided activity for children and families to use in The Mosaic Rooms garden and beyond. Check out and create with Lesson Plans.
All materials will be provided. Suitable for age 4-11. Parents or carers must accompany their children.
Rose Nordin is an artist from London currently in residence at the Jan Van Eyck Academy NL.
