Video artist Sapphire Goss will show a selection of short films that show her techniques of exploring, shooting and layering footage to create dreamlike compositions. Also shown will be a series of short films inspired by Milton Keynes, developed by workshop participants who have been working with Sapphire using these techniques throughout the day. 

You may also be interested in Sapphire's Flora and Film workshop taking place that day in which the skills and techniques showcased in her films will be explored.

Flora and Film

Video artist Sapphire Goss will lead a day long workshop for artists and creatives exploring the specific flora and fauna of Milton Keynes through walking and gathering along redways and bridleways, through estates, parks, underpasses and verges of MK.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own filming equipment if they have it, but otherwise to bring their phones and Sapphire Goss will teach participants editing, looping and collage techniques to develop unique films that combine the physical flora of Milton Keynes with footage of the walk.

At the end of the workshop, participants will have developed their own films which will be shown from 7pm at MK Gallery, followed by series of Sapphire Goss's short films. All participants are encouraged to stay for this part of the evening and may invite others they wish to join them to watch their films.

This workshop will involve a walk of around 2.5 miles, taken at a leisurely pace. This workshop will begin at Milton Keynes Arts Centre, and finish at Milton Keynes Gallery. We will organise some car drops back to MKAC on the day if you need a lift back to your car.
