POSTPONED - March 20th to 27th 2020

NEW DATE - Nov 9th to 16th 2020

This course will provide you with the opportunity to explore and experiment with wire and other materials to produce a range of standing sculptures based on observations from natural forms seen in hedgerows, flowers beds and the natural landscape.


We will be adopting a mixed media approach, shaping wire and using hand stitching, crochet, wrapping and binding techniques to incorporate and combine fine threads, delicate fabrics and hand printed surfaces.


These explorations will be embedded into wooden plinths to produce a standing sculpture. Small wooden plinths will be provided but participants could use found pieces of drift wood or characterful pieces of reclaimed wood.
