Back by popular demand, Show Me How returns for one final practical making session!

Join us for the last of the Show Me How making sessions initiated by artist Ania Bas to explore the value of local manufacturing, sharing, co-working, and co-operation. As we wave a sad goodbye to the project, we will be running an evening of not one but two practical making sessions, led by local makers and accompanied by refreshments and the opportunity to discuss ideas and issues around making and co-working.

These sessions represent the culmination of the knowledge and skills sharing that has been taking place throughout the project, as participants from previous sessions now become the teachers and step forward to share their own skills.

Session One: make an accessory or piece of jewellery with Mariana Rubino, the creative mind behind the ethical jewellery and accessories brand Beauty in Obsolescence, which strives to find new uses for 'obsolete' materials, thereby minimising their impact on the environment.

Session Two: make household products out of natural, everyday ingredients with Emma Ward, a single mum and part-time postgraduate student in Linguistics, who creates inexpensive natural alternative to chemical-filled, expensive commercial products.

Each session will last an hour, and both are FREE to attend.

For & Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet

For & Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet is a collaborative project between Radar and Loughborough University academics Dr Gillian Whiteley and Dr Jane Tormey, RadicalAesthetics-RadicalArt (RaRa).

This engaging programme responds to research into the political pamphlet and the relevance of the pamphlet for contemporary art practice. It has comprised a series of public workshops, a symposium, a Charnwood Museum exhibition and Pamphlet Day, a day-long public event in the town centre. Jane Tormey and Gillian Whiteley are working on a forthcoming edited book, ‘Art, Politics and the Pamphleteer’, to be published in the RaRa series by Bloomsbury.

This exhibition shares elements of this project, including new pamphlets by artists Patrick Goddard, Ferenc Gróf and Rory Pilgrim, commissioned by Radar; a selection of historical pamphlets from the Art of the Pamphlet exhibition; documentation of a series of pamphlet workshops led by artists Freee, Ruth Beale, Ciara Phillips and Little Riot Press and artworks inspired by For & Against workshops led by artists Chiara Dellerba and Sarah Green, and writer Alison Mott.
