The Body at Play – Workshop – Axe Carving with Wood/ Crochet with Fabric Scraps
30th June, 2pm, Volkskundemuseum Wien
please register under firstname.lastname@example.org
A workshop with and by Vinko Nino Jaeger and Wilhelm Binder
The workshop consists of two parts (wood or textile) that take place simultaneously, each person works individually on their own piece.
Wood workshop with Vinko Nino Jaeger:
We will follow the path of the body and carve figurative or abstract body objects out of wood. These objects will be given wheels so that they can be driven like a toy. First we will make a sketch of the presented body-object and then transform this into wood. The workshop offers an introduction to wood sculpting using the technique of carving with an axe.
Textile workshop with Wilhelm Binder:
Crochet is a special craft: there is no machine that can replace this technique. Therefore, each piece is unique. In the workshop we focus on making-techniques of sculptural forms – How do I crochet limbs, a head, a torso? How do I connect the individual parts to form a body? Whether animal or fantasy creature – at the end we have something self-made in our hands.
Info for both workshops:
Participation free of charge. No previous experience necessary. Material will be provided. Workshops are held in German. Barrier-free access and toilet.
