Over two sessions, family members supported by ATD Fourth World took part in a photo and drawing montage workshop led by residency artist Hamra Abbas. Family members joined Abbas on a visit to the V&A museum and took part in discussions around the V&A collection of South Asian miniature paintings from the Mughal era. After a demonstration by Abbas in how she manipulates these images in her own practice using Photoshop techniques, the families set about their own recreation of one of the paintings by taking photographs of themselves posing as the characters in the work. The results were a humourous take on their social and formal interpretations based on information and discussions held with the artist and with Education Coordinators at both Gasworks and the V&A.
