Collaborative sculpture project

Come together to design and make a collaborative textile sculpture!

The sculpture – made up of milk crates – will resemble a large stack of falling blocks, or a crumbling castle precariously put together. Each crate is the empty canvas upon which the workshop participants will craft their work.

The artwork is composed of two distinct textile practices which will be explored in two separate workshops: felt and weaving. The front of each block will display, in felt, the different places in Colyton which the workshop participants inhabit in their day to day, emphasising the notion of the sculpture as sort of city, or an abstract representation of Colyton. The sides and back of the blocks will be colourfully and playfully woven-up using up-cycled and recycled materials.

Finally we will put everything together, thus going through all the steps of making up a sculpture from A to Z.
