Cleo Broda is an artist and lecturer with interests in public space, architecture, maps and play. She makes drawings and objects that explore our relationship to public space, often working on site-specific commissions. She studied painting at Glasgow School of Art and has an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art.
Cleo will facilitate an art workshop where participants use natural materials to make individual maps charting significant moments in their lives. It will be a chance for participants to work visually and with their hands, putting their thoughts into another (visual) language. Through the metaphor of maps, participants will explore making visual representations of their lives and have a chance to take stock / gain perspective / and look for links and connections between their maps and those of others. The workshop will make use of drawing and collage materials along with objects gathered from the woods.
