FINDING VALUE WITH AMY DUNNACHIE
This workshop focuses on feeling a connection with your environment through making a talisman: object, tool or piece of jewellery, to represent and remind you about the core elements of your practice and living values. Through discussion, reflection and hands on making, we will explore our experiences of the environment we are in and use these to shape how we move forward with connection.
Amy Dunnachie is a socially engaged artist and maker, who lives and works on her home island of Jura. She works predominantly with found objects in a resourceful and environmentally conscious way. The playful, honest and often uplifting narrative of her visual work is largely informed by her life-long experience of island community. Her dedication to working towards 'connection' manifests itself in participatory projects centred around exchange, the environment, community and our own sense of being.
