Workshop 1 (12:30-14:30) with Echo Morgan
Willow warrior – As a performance artist Echo Morgan keen to make her own outfits. Sometimes they are painted directly onto her own skin, something they are an extended body made out of paper, willow or even metal.

The sculptured expansion of the body makes her appearance more original and personal. When it’s come down to mark making, the extended body offers the artist the sensation of losing control! The resulted painting often surprising and exciting.

In this workshop, Echo invites participants to create their own drawing-suit of amour. Two hours of sketching, sculpting, movement and mark making.

Echo Morgan (Xie Rong) was born in the communist China of the Economic Reforms. She studied at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute High School before moving to London where she gained a BA in Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins and a MA in Fine Art at Royal College of Art.
