I’ve spent four days out of the last two weeks running a workshop at Oakwood School in St Albans.
Using material left over from the London 2012 Olympics and working on the themes of ‘Legacy’ and ‘Recycling’ myself and Poplar class created a new creature, made up of lots of different creatures, that could recycle man-made material. Each child designed and made their own piece of the sculpture and we spent an exciting, nail-biting final few minutes as myself and two members of staff hoisted the final work between two trees in the playground in front of a cheering class.
It was great fun and the children were brilliant.
Full details here.
Second day of building at g39 in Cardiff over. That’s the frame built, tomorrow it gets wrapped in blackout cloth.
’Rich was able to turn a potentially provocative and difficult project into a successful and challenging piece that delighted, enthused and provoked audiences visiting the gallery space.’
