In 2014 and 2015 she was Programme Coordinator, and Curator of the Phoenix Bursary at the Glasgow School of Art, an extensive project and exhibition that supported the cohort of the 2014 graduating Fine Art class after the first Mackintosh fire. Kubba has conducted many multi-disciplinary workshops at the GSA, and at other locations such as the Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow. Kubba is currently Artist-in-Residence at the Fisch Haus, Wichita, where she is completing a six week residency. Objects of Adornment is a workshop that explores techniques of recording, digitization, image manipulation and printing that I use in both my artistic and publication work. We will use bed-scanners, phone cameras, drawings and writing (both hand-written and typed) to weave together stories related to personal objects. What you need to prepare: Objects of adornment: Nylon stockings, lipstick and other make up, scarves, jewellery and any other personal or domestic objects you would like to document. You don't have to have a story ready, but if you do, you can think about it beforehand and we can write it up together. If you are more comfortable with just making images, that's ok too. No previous knowledge or skills are required for this workshop Final outcome: The images and texts we make together during the workshop will be used to make a publication that will be available for all the workshop participants at the end of March, to be picked up from the Fisch Haus or MakeICT
