Workshop: Creative Collage with Illustrator Habiba Nabisubi

Sat 5 August 2023 , 10:30am-12pm

Weston Park Museum

Join multimedia artist and Hair: Untold Stories illustrator Habiba Nabisubi for a collage workshop celebrating the textured beauty and versatility of Afro Hair.

 

Using Habiba’s own illustrations of hair as your creative springboard, you will be encouraged to cut up and (re)construct your own unique artwork. So bring an open mind and plenty of imagination - no previous collage experience necessary! 

 

This workshop is part of the programme of events complementing the exhibition Hair: Untold Stories, at Weston Park Museum until Sunday 29 October 2023. 

 

Habiba Nabisubi is a multimedia artist, educator, mental health advocate and illustrator based in South London. Having lived in both Kampala, Uganda as well as the UK, she draws inspiration from both sides of her heritage and lived experience when creating new work.  

Habiba is a visual storyteller, who makes work that she feels is relevant, usually rooted within topics that are bigger than herself with the hope that they inspire some kind of feeling. She would describe her work as engaging, inclusive, conversation starters and an opportunity for learning. With authentic representation being a fundamental theme throughout. She is passionate about facilitating conversations and workshops (for all people) around mental health and the catharsis of having a creative outlet.
