Artist Information : Marilyn Collins
Category : Sculpture  
Preferred age groups : 8 to 18 year olds  
Maximum group size : 30  
Workshop Proposals : 1) Water feature workshop: Introduction to Londons hidden waterways and where they run in the neighbourhood of the school. Using recycled materials floating sculptures are created and floated on water if this is possible. The sculptures incorporate words which the participants have written in response to the unseen waterways.
2) Figures in Action: Figurative sculpture using brush and various shaped wood donated by tree surgeons. Stakes are driven into the ground as an armature, and wood added using wire, raffia and cable ties to create human or animal forms. This workshop requires some commitment from a teacher/assistant to ensure that health and safety procedures are understood and adhered to. Semi-permanent figures are created
3) Cardboard sculptures: Cardboard boxes are cut, shaped, glued, taped and collaged into sculptural shapes. It is possible for older students to laminate these with jesmonite to create permanent outdoor features like those made at Beavers School.
4) Breezeblock relief sculpture: Sculptural reliefs are modelled and cast. They are mounted onto breezeblocks which can be assembled in a variety of shapes to create a free-standing feature.
