Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platfom until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as Ptarmigan during these years.
Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.
An evening class in figure writing with a nude model. The class will cover a series of short, 10 minute poses to get the ink running as well as some longer poses, in which the writers can experiment with their preferred techniques in greater depth.
During the evening we will explore writing the figure in black & white; tonal writing; colour; chiaroscuro text; the figure in their environment and the figure in motion.
Participants should bring with them writing tools of their choice (pen and paper, typewriter, laptop...) though pens and paper will also be available during the class for those who require them.
