This workshop will combine visual art, performance and object theatre. Over the course of the afternoon participants will create large-scale sculptural objects using a range of materials and found or hand-made objects, at the end of the workshop these objects will become part of an ‘object theatre’ and will be animated through a performance. The performance will be filmed to post on the gallery’s Facebook page.
