What’s it all about?
You may never have created a sculpture, let alone with 20 other people. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to do just that? This class will give you the opportunity to make an unorthodox sculpture using just fabrics and the creative ideas of a group of people. It will gift you the joy of creating without thinking about results.
What will we cover?
The aim is to work as a group, employing a brainstorming technique where every idea counts. We will create a sculpture with just our hands, fabrics and thoughts. It is about listening to each other and appreciating each others’ point of view.
