Branching Out: Creative Collaborations With Trees, a week-long course at Schumacher College 
Facilitated by artists Camilla Nelson, Alex Metcalf with guest artist Tim Knowles
4 - 8 April, 2016

Are you an artist, writer or performer looking to take your practice in a new direction? Are you a thinker in search of practical experiment? Are you a tree enthusiast keen to create? Or do you just want to have fun with trees? 

Places are still available for Branching Out (https://www.schumachercollege.org.uk/courses/short-courses/collaborations-with-trees), a residential short course at Schumacher College facilitated by three contemporary artists and thinkers whose unique ways of working with trees include writing, performance, drawing, sound and installation. We aim to inspire and support you to explore new ideas and techniques, to work with unusual materials in novel environments, but no specialist knowledge is required. We welcome both amateurs and experts alike!

We will explore the shift in perception that comes from tying yourself to a tree (Charles Ray), the discombobulation of acoustically penetrating a tree's internal workings (Tree Listening) and the mind-opening excitement of embodying tree-being (Other Spaces), among other innovative tree-led strategies designed to remake your sense of human-tree relations. Branching Out fosters a radical reconception of the ways we inhabit the world in relation to other organisms. 

Camilla Nelson (www.singingapplepress.com) is a poet, text-artist, researcher and collaborator across a range of disciplines.  Alex Metcalf (www.alexmetcalf.co.uk/Site/Home.html) is an installation artist with a long history of working intimately with trees.

Tim Knowles is best known for making visible what is, by nature or by design, unseen. Working in a range of media from photography and video to drawing and light installation, Knowles creates process-oriented works that rely on chance and environmental elements. www.timknowles.co.uk.

If you'd like to learn more about Alex Metcalf's work, there's a short piece from BBC News at news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/8267151.stm, and a piece from The Guardian at www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2008/may/06/art.conservation

Some examples of Camilla's work can be seen at theclearingonline.org/2015/05/new-work-from-camilla-nelson-and-alex-josephy/ and ro.ecu.edu.au/landscapes/vol5/iss2/11/.
