6 December — 10 December 2010

For the four day retreat Ways and Means, artists were invited to be both teachers and students, sharing knowledge and exploring skills with peers and guest speakers through practice and collective thinking.

Time, materials and processes were stripped back to consider approaches to art practice using the immediate environment, shared knowledge and a light touch.
