For these workshops, lab equipment and earth samples will be used to make prints. The soil you collect should be from a place that’s significant to you—whether you find it yourself or have someone mail you a sample from another place that you can’t visit right now due to the pandemic. In these ‘prints’ of earth processes, the radial patterns turn out differently depending on soil quality, carbon and mineral content. Soil chromatography has been used to determine the health of soil, but we can use it to create a collection of artworks that represent different places.
Register in advance for these free workshops by RSVPing to email@example.com. A detailed material list will be provided by email.

About the Branscombe House Artist Residency
Branscombe House is located at 4900 Steveston Highway and is one of the earliest settler homes built in the area; as such it is significant for its historical association to Steveston and for reflecting the pattern of commercial and related residential development that occurred in Steveston’s early history.
The Branscombe House Artist-in-Residence is selected annually via an open call. Our open call is now closed. Check back next year for 2023 opportunity.
