And the wild

Christine Blaney and Pat Griffin

Narrative Illustration, Fairy Tales

The workshop focus is on the relationship between illustration and narrative. It explores ideas of story reinterpretation and origination through hybrid and analogue practices in response to the 'fairy tale'.

The fairy tale is one of the few art forms that appeals to both children and adults. When we return to these stories at different stages of our lives they always present us with new understanding.

"Fairy tales, myths, and stories provide understandings which sharpen our sight so that we can pick out and pick up the path left by the wildish nature. The instruction found in story reassures us that the path has not run out... The tracks we all are following are those of the wild and innate instinctual Self."
(Clarissa Pinkola Estes)

During the workshop students will use experimental drawing, mark making, collage techniques etc to create a new series of images which will take the form of a handmade and printed concertina book.
