Using 2d and 3d collaging, they will create imaginative plants and flowers that have never before been discovered.These could be from the depths of a jungle, the coral reef of a sea bed, the caves of an ancient mountainside, or the untrodden surfaces of planets deep in outer space.
The activity will be run on drop-in basis with two different spaces set-up for participants:
Sculpture Area – This space will allow individuals/pairs to work with a diverse range of materials to create 3d plants and flowers. These can then be decorated with a range of materials, patterns and designs.
Collaborative Collage Area – Long sheets of paper will be laid out for participants to add to to create a collaborative collage, placing and sticking cut out or ripped pieces of coloured paper. The collage will act as a graffiti wall which will build up during the day.
A range of materials will be provided, as well as visual and textural inspiration.
