making huuuuge sculptures

Thanks to the Children's Scrapstore in Bristol for the amazing materials. These images are of another workshop I devised, resourced, led and facilitated at Arnolfini. The children were inspired by large scale images of sculptures and installations by Angus Fairhurst and Cosima Von Bonin from Arnolfini's archive.

Story Ideas

Green Melodica

I helped to record some music by Matt Jones with himself, Sam, Lisa and Michal one sunny day recently in Ashton Court. Mostly I drew them but I also played the melodica for a bit! 


Michal wandering, as instructed.

of late...Arnolfini

Hello! I have been leading workshops and making an activity sheet for a project called Arnolfini Story which celebrates the heritage of this contemporary arts centre in Bristol.

At the workshops children drew, explored contemporary sculpture and made a giant octopus a little like Cosima Von Bonin's from her exhibition in 2012.

Apparently one child could remember when the building was once attacked by dinosaurs. I must say, that occasion has slipped my mind.

The next free drop in workshop will include some graffitiing activities and more junk-modelling on 25th July at Arnolfini Saturday 25th July, all ages welcome!

We Are family day at Arnolfini.

Last Saturday I devised and led a workshop alongside The Children's Scrapstore at Arnolfini.

The children were exploring sound and coming up with ways to represent sound visually.

For instance, they made some SOUND CREATURES!

drew to the Beach Boys

made  sound words...

                                  played some highly amusing describing and drawing games

                                              and made, then named musical instruments.

The workshop was linked to the current exhibition at Arnolfini, on until the 5th May, by Christine Sun Kim.
