Since I Have a Hammer
hands-on poetry workshops for poets & artists
Hammer poetry into wood, stitch it into fibers, write words in the dirt with a stick... This is a workshop geared toward both poets who would like to experiment with material practices and visual artists who use language in their work, and who would like to attend to the poetics of that language. In each workshop, we will first discuss the language-based art of one artist (Arthur Bispo do Rosário; Julie Patton; Cecilia Vicuña), followed by hands-on poetry & art making, and then a feedback session
Each workshop is on a Saturday, 10AM to 1 pm, in Kaia Sand's studio (Brooklyn neighborhood, Southeast Portland)
Sat. Sept 30 • $65
Sat. Oct 28 • $65
Sat. Nov 11 • $65
register for all three workshops • $175
