Creative Workshops

5 Creative Workshops Where We Make Eleanor Inspired Art

MY DAY Podcast, Led by Kathie Russo

Producer Kathleen Russo is the Director of the Audio Podcast Fellows Program at Stony Brook Southampton. She is the executive producer with Tina Brown of the podcast TBD by Wondery, and created and produced the podcast/radio show Here’s The Thing with Alec Baldwin (WNYC production).

Eleanor Roosevelt had a syndicated column for over 20 years called "My Day" where she candidly explored both the personal and political. In this workshop, we will read, as a group, one of Eleanor's "My Day" and discuss its relevance then and today. After instruction regarding structure and storytelling, you will write your own “May Day” article. After some time to workshop writing in the class, we will take turns going in the studio to record as a podcast.

VJ mixing and projection workshop, Led by Peter Bill

Peter Bill is an artist, activist, and educator. Since the 90's he has been working connecting under-represented communities with the technology to broadcast their voices on 4 continents.

Using inspiration from roundtables, participants will do live drawing on imagery, and create written text which will be included in a video mix. This workshop will be a brief intro to mixing video using the VJ software Resolume Avenue, connecting input devices and mixing up a selection of Time-lapse work with participant creations.

Fluff T-shirts, Led by House of Fluff

We use only the finest faux fur textiles that we develop ourselves in Italy or source directly around the globe. We are not interested in passing trends. We make a luxury product that lasts for years and keeps you warm like real fur - but is 100% cruelty-free.

Silk Screening, Led by Cannon Hersey

Candle Making, Led by Stripped Ego
