Georgie Fay runs participatory workshops and activities responding to her practice with various participants as part of the October Gallery Education Programme in and around central London, and as a freelance artist facilitator. Participation, sharing and socially engaged practice is at the heart of her work and has led her to explore particular themes. Her art practice is both installation and print based, it researches the theme of ‘Loss of Imagination’, 'Finding Home' and 'Mapping our world' and particularly explores this in relation to den and shelter building. She continues her printmaking practice at Citylit and Bainbridge Studios in London,and has exhibited her den based installations in her degree show and various festivals around the UK.
She is particularly interested in bringing together her installation work and printmaking practice by bringing the prints out of the frames and into our real world - taking our imaginations with us!
Her den and shelter building workshops for participants of all ages further her own practice by observing and exploring how different people respond to the theme and use these temporary structures in many different ways. She has recently begun to think more about the space a den creates and how important a space of one's own can become especially in relation to current issues in our transient world like migration and globalization.

Solo Exhibition at Half Moon Gallery 'Halfway Home' 18 April - 9 July 2018
A thought-provoking collection of photographs and prints exploring the notion of home, and the everyday journeys we make which are often taken for granted.
Halfway Home contains striking observations of place and space by London based artist Georgie Fay. Her work for this exhibition explores the notion of flight and the journeys made by migrating birds, using the current migrant crisis as a point of poignant reference. Georgie’s work represents the feelings of homesickness and nostalgia, which are often evoked when travelling and experiencing unfamiliar landscapes.
