Taster workshop: Finding your Form 7-11 years
Learn two techniques for creating sculptures. Take your first steps in carving by learning how to create a modernist masterpiece from a bar of soap! Be inspired by the smooth forms of Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore. Use safe and simple tools to shape your soap and reveal the artwork within. Then find out how to build a sculpture using aluminium foil to create the human form. Take inspiration from the exaggerated figures of Alberto Giacometti. All materials provided.
Taster workshop: Assemble an Artwork 5-11 years
‘Assemblage’ is a popular way for artists to make three-dimensional work. Create an art piece in a box by gathering together a collection of junk, old maps, textures, images and found objects to create an assembled artwork with meaning. Create a story around the items you have chosen like artist Joseph Cornell or choose to paint your box to create a harmonious textured artwork like Louise Nevelson. All materials provided. Age 5-11.
