Ages 9-13 years
Tutor: Emily Shaddick
This Robert Klippel-inspired workshop will allow participants to explore a range of materials before creating their own wire sculptures. Using beads, buttons, foam and other found materials they will experiment with how to thread the wire, what materials work and why and to develop a sense of balance. This creative workshop is suitable for all kinds of thinkers as it combines both logic and creativity in a fun and inspiring atmosphere.
