Guided through the sonorous stones we will sing to the rhythm of our mother’s bones. Join the human-geologic choir. This is an experimental session where you will be invited to play ceramic stone-formed instruments as part of a shifting choir of voices. No prior singing experience is required.
You can listen to some recordings made by AJ during her communal making session below…
We will be taking your favourite games from parties to playgrounds and making them into something new. Using themes from the weekend we will make a new street game and test it out on our fellow Jamboreers. Come for the first hour to help think of the rules and come to the second hour to test and play!
Come and make exceptional prints in response to randomly drawn prompts. Printmaking For Boys will allow participants to dive into printmaking regardless of previous experience in a supportive environment. Materials provided.
Experimenting with food making, making food containers and support for the utensils with clay and what objects we find. Resulting in a pop up communal picnic giving participants a chance to discuss the process of making, social objects and the social role of food in the outdoors.
‘Telling time’ is a making session where we will work with our words and voices to construct a story of how we are, where we are, when we are. No special vocal skills are needed, just a sense of your h/story, and how you might tell it. We will do some voice games, and work in pairs and as a group to create fragments of narrative. Having built a score, we will present a short speech-choir performance. Pens, paper and encouragement will be provided.
Landscape Painters Anonymous offers an opportunity to indulge in the guilty pleasure of en plein air painting within the picturesque grounds of the Dartington Estate. Participants will walk together to a scenic location to make watercolour paintings. The activity promotes a social environment for the leisurely exploration of observational painting, within an Arcadian landscape, away from the scrutiny of society. Materials provided, painting and drawing experience is not necessary.
