Soft sculpture: 5 Week Course


During this 5 week course we will be transforming fabric into small ‘soft sculptures’ in each session there will be time to learn about artists who work with textiles and create installations these will include: Eric Conrad (USA), Ernesto Neto (Brazil), Feliciano Centurión (Paraguay), Liliana Segovia (Paraguay), Marta Minujín (Argentina).

There will be opportunities to investigate texture, colour and composition as well as exploring the potential fabrics have to evoke emotions.

Over the weeks we will work into the sculptures adding materials including paint and yarn.

The course is aimed at participants who want to work with a variety of materials to create meaningful contemporary art pieces and we welcome people at all levels of experience of working with textiles.

Basic materials will be provided and we want to reuse existing fabrics rather than newly purchased so we encourage people to bring along their unwanted textiles to use and share remember we are creating small scale objects so you won’t need too much! It will also be useful for you to bring along a sketch book to make notes and to record ideas.
