Inspired by our natural world, we will be creating sculptural forms using recycled and found materials, exploring form, surface, colour, matter and the concept of transformation. Materials will include wire, twine, paper, plastic, fabric, found objects, threads, glue.
You will develop creative design ideas, wirework skills (twisting, wrapping, weaving), and utilise papier mache techniques, amongst others. Suitable for all abilities.
Participants may bring along their own recycled materials to incorporate in the work.
A chance to explore new techniques and create a 2d or 3-d decorative wire piece. You will initially sketch from objects and images provided, exploring ideas for your final piece. This will lead to designing and making your own 2d or 3d drawn form using a range of wirework techniques and specialist tools to twist, attach, weave, shape and wrap – creating forms of 3d mark-making.
Through the work you will develop creative ideas and dexterity in a stimulating, supportive environment.
Materials £5 pp per final piece
