Your away day will be facilitated by CJ Mahony, a studio artist at Wysing. The workshop is inspired by community building practices, in which groups of people with common interests or goals come together to create a structure for common use. It also references rituals of creation, destruction, and renewal. In the workshop, participants will work together to build a physical structure that supports a collective aspiration.
First, the team will identify an intention together. They will then imagine placing it into a small object made of plaster. For the rest of the day, they will work collaboratively, guided throughout by CJ Mahony, to build an experimental temporary structure which will support and elevate their intention. The structure will be photographed, and then released, by fire.
