Time to get creative with London College of Communication
WHEN: Under way, until 9 March
WHERE: LCC Studio, Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre, London SE1 6TE
COST: Free and open to all
The London College of Communication (LCC) UAL, based in Elephant & Castle, is hosting a selection of creative and immersive workshops as part of its A-Zine series.
The workshops, taking place in the LCC Studio, are split into three categories: sport, DIY and cookery. Each has two dedicated workshops, run by artists Eleni Papazoglou, Sam Blackwood and Isabel Alsina-Reynolds respectively.
Within the sessions, attendees will create artwork using collage, photography, sculpture and moving image, with the goal of creating a ‘zine’– an accumulation of everyone’s activity during the three workshops.
The final zine will be showcased on 15 March during the LCC launch night, when the wider community will be able to view the final design. Book your tickets for the launch night here.
The A-Zine series kicked off with Sport, hosted by Papazoglou, on Tuesday 19 February. Guests were introduced to Goalball by local team The Elephants. Goalball is a team sport for those with a visual impairment. In the second workshop, which took place on Thursday 21 February, the group created a new sport, using existing rules while making the game inclusive.
The next workshops, focusing on DIY, will take place on Tuesday 26 and Thursday 28 February. Blackwood will show participants how to create sculptures through DIY. In workshop one, they will make collages using existing imagery and materials to create original stories. Part two will explore how objects can be reused to create art.
The final set of workshops, run by Alsina-Reynolds, will look at recipes in different cultures and the stories behind them.
In workshop one, on Thursday 7 March, participants will film and record stories from the local community and investigate how these can be communicated through different media. This work will be used in workshop two, on Saturday 9 March, when historical recipes will also be looked at to create the final ‘zine’.
