Sculpture – Making with everyday objects
Sculpting with words- Craft words of hope about the world we wish to live in. Curve build with bottles – what could it become. Marine Life Forms. Inspired by plant-like animals (phytoplankton) from the ocean to create small sculptures. Mobile Artworks – Selecting lightweight discarded materials for their colour, translucency and texture.
One of my most popular workshops is sculpture using Modroc. A material that is easy to manipulate. Children can easily make sculptural forms and love the mess that can come with it.
Recycled sculptures and installations. Human figures, animals, monsters, cardboard cities and shadow sculptures. Workshops tailored to suit a variety of age groups and themes.
Stone carving as a collaborative project; making a sculpture or piece of furniture for the school grounds.
Quick and imaginative line drawing exercises using charcoal. Printmaking workshops to suit all abilities including mono-printing, poly-printing, lino-printing, drypoints collographs and etchings. Simple wire sculpture.
