The sculpture exhibitions at RWA will be accompanied by The Sculpture Lab; a space designed to encourage interaction and participation. We welcome all ages and abilities to enter and explore, investigate, and enjoy making sculpture.

There are making-stations in the Sculpture Lab with materials available for you to try making your own sculptural mobiles, balsa foam figures, and abstract cardboard sculpture from Saturday 16 March until Saturday 1 June during gallery opening times; just drop in and make it part of your visit. Then site your masterpiece in the Indoor Sculpture Park for other visitors to enjoy.

The RWA’s Indoor Sculpture Park will grow as people contribute to it. We are inviting young participants to taking part in the creation of a “landscape”, which itself will be sculpted especially for this exhibition. Small-scale sculpture will then be sited in and around it to form a sculpture park.
