Red Dress Productions will present To the Table, a multi-disciplinary installation created through interactive workshops in Fred Johnson Park, in Scarborough. We’ll create a modular sculpture – the kitchen table reimagined – around which we’ll gather to tangle with and celebrate what brings us to the table. When do we feel welcome to the table, and why? How do we welcome each other? During 12 all-ages drop-in workshops, we’ll engage community members in diverse art-making practices. We’ll design and build a number of different table top forms – square, triangular, circular, oval, rounded edges etc., as well as table legs in a variety of lengths. Ultimately, we’re working to create a table that’s comfortable for as many as possible to gather around, and that can be remade in to many different forms, for many different possibilities. Through design, ceramic and glass mosaic, fabric hand-stitching and printing, and word and sound workshops, we’ll create a multi-sensory installation that culminates in an art feast and celebration on August 4 that calls us to a table of our own making.
Workshops will take place on July 3, 4, 9,10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, and 26 from 12 to 4pm. Participants are welcome to join one, any, or all workshops. Materials will be provided.
