Sabrina Shirazi

Sabrina Shirazi is an artist and designer who produces visual art and textiles inspired by colour, unconventional behaviour and play.

Are you Deaf or hard of hearing? Would you like to explore new ways of ‘feeling’ sound with flavour, colour and texture? How about co-designing a bone conducting gobstopper?

Studio resident artist Sabrina Shirazi is interested in exploring alternative approaches to experiencing sound and would love to invite Deaf and Hard of Hearing participants to take part in a free creative workshop (we will have two BSL interpreters present throughout).

During the evening (which will last from 18:30 - 20:30) we will explore how you can ‘digest’ sound. You will be feeling vibrations, savouring delicious food, crafting objects and testing Sabrina’s bone conducting gobstoppers. If you don't know what a bone conducting gobstopper is, now is your chance to find out!

To attend please book your free ticket online - there are limited spaces so book in advance to ensure your place on this tasty workshop! Please meet in the upstairs foyer, where Sabrina will be there to guide you to the Studio (which is just beyond the Café/Bar).

If you have any food allergies or would like to talk to us about your access requirements please email sabrinashirazi@gmail.com.

Supported by Unlimited Impact; supporting artists and venues to celebrate the work of disabled artists, funded by Spirit of 2012
