12 years to adult
All Levels

Create your very own unique soft sculpture through the use of traditional and non-traditional materials and techniques including fabric, paper, yarn, plastic, beads, wrapping, stitch and binding.

This workshop is designed for all levels of ability including children aged 12 or above accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Those with no prior experience working with textiles will get an intensive introduction to the tactile and sculptural potential of cloth and some basic techniques to get them started. For more experienced participants there will be sewing machines and tips for using traditional techniques in contemporary ways.  

All participants will receive one on one guidance from the tutor as well as the opportunity to handle and explore soft sculptural artwork examples. Children are encouraged to explore, experiment and play with the available materials and can work towards making a tactile form or their own open ended tactile outcome! This is a fun and experimental workshop and everyone will be able to take home a tactile form of their own.
