This active, accessible, online workshop will explore a range of drawing and sculpture games using pencils, paper, tape, paper straws, phones, and our own bodies. After looking at some exciting contemporary artists’ work for inspiration (including Jo Milne and Segni Mossi), participants will create both collaborative and individual artworks.

Sustainability

We plan, as far as possible, for each material to be re-used and reinvented across the entire summer programme, dramatically minimising our use and waste of creative materials and resources.
