On Zoom 10:00am - 11:00am, Wednesday 4th August 2021

Suitable for 9-13 year olds

Join us for this workshop with artist Isis Whiteaway making abstract sculptures using materials already in your house. We will look at ways we can fold cardboard to create structure and ways we can cut card to join it together securely before assembling to make our sculptures. You should have time to start painting your creations but you might want to do more decorating after the workshop when the first layer of paint has dried.

You will need:

  • Card/cardboard (various thicknesses) like toilet roll tubes, boxes, packaging etc and 1 large bit to use as a base
  • Masking tape (so you can paint over it)
  • Paper (newspaper, tissue paper, normal paper - not essential)
  • Scissors
  • Decorative material/ household bits/ raid the recycling
  • Glue stick
  • Paint & paintbrushes (or something to add some colour!)
  • A glue gun would help but not essential
This workshop is being held on Zoom. Please book onto the workshop, then at least one day before the workshop you will be sent the Zoom meeting details and password. Adults must stay in the room with their children for the duration of the workshop for safeguarding reasons.
