Wracking my Brain what my brain looks like
Wracking my Brain is a series of workshops taking place at the Headway Activity and Rehabilitation Centre. Sculptor, Pam Foley will encourage participants to explore the feelings and emotions stemming from brain injury. Using clay participants will create a personal sculpture that conveys to others what life has been like since the accident.
The course will be led by sculptor and Sunningwell tutor, Pam Foley, who will encourage participants to explore the physical and emotional side-effects of brain injury through sculpture techniques. Participants will make a piece of sculpture to take home at the end of course. Pam experienced brain injury herself several years ago and will bring her very own personal experience and related artwork, to the workshop.
Following sculptor tutor, Pam Foley’s involvement with Crash research at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine as a ‘patient representative’, Pam has now been commissioned to produce a sculpture representing her own personal, brain injury, journey. Pam hopes to bring the sculpture to the Wracking my Brain workshop for discussion and inspiration.
The workshop takes place over several weeks in April, prior to International Sculpture Day 2021 (ISDay 2021) on Saturday 24th April which aims to celebrate and promote sculpture and sculptors. It is hoped that with permission from participants, the sculptures made during the workshops will also be exhibited at the art school on ISDAy 2021 and during Artweeks on 1 May 2021.
