Landscape as Palimpsest

Workshop with Sally Wetherall as part of doing together 2023

Tuesday 4 April 2023

doing together is a yearly two-day making and sharing practice symposium at Locksbrook Campus, hosted by Bath Spa University’s Centre of Cultural and Creative Industries and Art Research Centre. Workshops, delivered by staff and PGR students from across the University, share practice-based research methods and a broad range of approaches to practice. doing together is proposed as a generous space to make/do/share and discuss practice with colleagues from a range of different Schools. Throughout the symposium, facilitators - alongside participants - test out ways of doing together in an effort to make their practice-based research explicit, rather than simply describe it.

Focusing particularly on the concept of the palimpsest and writan landscape. This workshop started with an introduction to Wetherall's research which is engaged within ceramic and print practice; and how this intertwines with written, historical research and memory gathering.

Using experimental ceramic and print processes, participants examined the concept of the palimpsest, particularly as this relates to understanding landscape. Working with porcelain paper clay, found clay and slip, print process, plant material, sgraffito, words and memories, participants looked at how materials can be built up, layered or erased.
