Tryout – Family Weekend: Glasgow International


Tryout is a creative drop-in space for all, specially designed around our summer exhibitions.

Tramway’s regular TRYOUT extends over two days to explore the themes running across all three of Tramway’s Glasgow International 2018 exhibitions. Combining imagery from early civilizations and contemporary digital culture, the weekend invites you to imagine an alternative future civilization.

These sessions offer the opportunity to gain an Arts Award Discover certificate for anyone aged up to 25.

What’s on Saturday

Head to Tramway for a drop-in workshop led by artist Tom Krasny, whose work is currently installed in the Laurieston Arches as part of GI. Use laser-cut foam building blocks to create small, flat or three-dimensional pixelated-mosaic images. These could be of a fictional character, objects or artefacts like masks or ornaments, inspired by the GI exhibitions.

What’s on Sunday

Join artist Szymon Kula for a monoprinting workshop. Printed digital images, including documentation of Tramway’s exhibitions, will be cut out and rearranged, and layered over transparent film, to form the guideline of your own individual monoprint.

Arts Award Discover (Both days)

Upper foyer

Arts Award Discover is an introductory award certified by Trinity College London. This weekend, anyone from 5-25 is invited to explore Tramway’s Glasgow International exhibitions and workshops, fill in an Arts Log, and return it to the Arts Award desk by 3.30pm.

Tramway will take your contact details and advise you when your certificate is ready to collect.

Please note: studio capacity is limited, and entry for the drop-in workshops is first-come, first-served. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
