Lunch Club with Gregory Dunn
Friday 28 June, 1-2pm
"Escape your desk or studio for an hour and join us for lunch. Everyone is welcome. We have an array of tea, coffee and herbal teas – all you need to bring is your packed lunch.
At this lunch club ESP member Gregory Dunn will share his experience of being artist-in-residence in Japan. Gregory is a mixed media artist concerned with material thresholds and the extent to which physical margins can be stretched without breaking. He is currently studying on the MA Fine Art at Birmingham City University. In 2012 his interests motivated him to spend three months in Mino City, Japan, learning how to make Mino Washi (handmade paper made from Asian Mulberry trees) on a locally funded group residency. At this Lunch Club Gregory will informally share information on how he applied for this residency, what he learnt in terms of cultural history and technical skill of the Washi paper in Japan and how the experience affected his practice. This event is designed to be a sociable discussion, open to all."
