I was delighted to be invited to run a duster workshop with the Justlife ‘Into-Art’ group this week, in response to several members of the group visiting the recent duster exhibition in the University of Brighton’s Grand Parade site back in April. They meet each Thursday in Brighton, with leader Sarah Bennett offering art based workshop to adults who are ‘close to the streets’, so either homeless or in temporary living accommodation. Exploring domesticity in this context was a humbling and inspiring experience.
After a short introduction everyone got stuck straight in, with several others joining us as the morning progressed. I’ll be collecting the finished dusters next week, but in the meantime here are some of their wonderful works in progress.
