Family Saturday: Love is the dream

Join Sally Butcher, artist in residence for Feed, for a family workshop exploring ideas of care that can be seen and not seen, through creative play with words, including wax resist, embossing and lino printing. Participants are invited to respond to the language, colours and textures of Jade de Montserrat’s artwork on Feeding Chair in Ikon’s Resource Room.

About the artist

Sally Butcher is an artist, researcher, activist and (m)other, based in Birmingham. Her interdisciplinary feminist practice draws on lived experience to engage with spheres of subjectivity and embodiment. Butcher’s PhD explores the ‘Invisibilities of (In)fertility between the Medical and the Maternal’ through narrative, language and bodily data.
