Company: Wheatpasting Collage

11am – 1pm


Drop into Slugtown to learn the ancient technique of wheatpasting, which only requires two ingredients – flour and water! We will be using wheatpaste to collage displays for an exhibition at Slugtown at the end of the week.

This workshop is part of Company, a weeklong series of workshops and events from 14 August 2023 – 20 August 2023.  Company is devised for young people in Shieldfield, and explores the connection between food and art, and their ability to bring people together! The project includes daily workshops across 1 week, hosted at local Shieldfield organisations. The week will culminate in a 2 day weekend celebration with a communal meal and breadcrumb trail around Wretham Place, and an exhibition at Slugtown.

Company has been devised by Slugtown, and kindly supported by Ragdoll Foundation.
