The Building Site with Angela Lyn
The second workshop for The Building Site project workshops with Angela Lyn took place last week, with Angela finding herself in East London in person, instead of over Skype from Switzerland! Ideas of art, space and connections were discussed and we were all given roles for the Building Site, from wordsmith to garden architect. This collaborative project will take place over 5 weeks, working to produce a living, moving and working art piece for her exhibition in Shoreditch in October.
