Junk Sculpture Workshop
The aim of the workshop is to produce ‘life size’ figures made from collected waste-packaging. Working in groups of 4 – 5 the children will learn how to assemble their models using basic techniques and materials such as glue cellotape/masking tape.

Installation For A Play: Takes the form of a backdrop and set for a school play. The design is developed from abstract drawings based on aspects of the plot, using paint and 3D cardboard sculpture.
Cacti Furniture/Plant People/3D Textiles: This project approaches the design process from a highly experimental angle, encouraging drawing and gathering ideas in an unusual way from using plant forms as source material. Forms, textures and assemblage techniques are developed through experimentation using limited materials. This may lead to individual or collaborative work.

Text & Image
A workshop for any group, but adapted to age range. Examining the use of text in the world, graffiti, signs, memorials etc. Making text from everyday objects in 3D. Exploring how text can evoke emotion.
Sculpture
First using drawing to see how ideas can be put into a space. Reducing the complexity of a drawing to constituent parts. Drawing other children/adults in group and exploring how to see them as objects. Using the drawings as a basis to create a sculpture of a head. Types of head – natural & idealized. Making heads in solid form
