Nigerian-born, British artist Mary Evans is known for her use of paper-based materials and cut-out silhouettes that she composes to create evocative site-specific installations. Inspired by Evans’ use of materials and cut-out techniques, which can b viewed in her solo exhibition GILT, now on show at Zeitz MOCAA, this Family Learning Workshop will ask participants to create their own decorative cut-out artworks. Participants will explore the ideas of and relationship between etiquette, domesticity, custom, culture, portraiture and identity while working with doilies, coloured paper and card.
