Student Social for ‘COTTON: Global Threads’ curated by Manchester Art Group

 

16th March, Whitworth Art Gallery. 6.30pm – 9pm.

 

The Student Social is a student-curated programme of exhibition premieres, which acts as a platform for student talent, creativity and participation.

The student social gives you the opportunity to have a late night private view of the exhibition, meet fellow students, artists and art-lovers and take part in a series of workshops relating to the exhibition.

One workshop will be held by local artist Vicki Wheeler involving threading and weaving to create your own cotton sculptures.

Manchester Art Group students will be running a collaborative workshop to construct a huge cotton patchwork. The final product will be exhibited later somewhere in the gallery. Lovely vibrant and patterned fabrics have been donated by COW Vintage for you to cut and customise.

There will be live music by ambient dubstep duo, Bug and Leaf and Newsicmoos DJ’s spinning tunes and maybe some cotton!

And free drinks too!

 

Please invite yourself and friends to our Facebook event, ‘Student Social for COTTON: Global Threads’ and visit our Facebook page, Manchester Art Group, or our twitter account, @McrArtGroup, to keep up to date with news!

 

The Manchester Art Group is an undergraduate collective from Art History and Visual Studies department at Manchester University, staging events, gigs, trips and exhibitions.
