Sculpture Saturdays are a series of bookable workshops designed for primary school aged children and their families to make, play and work together. The workshops will be led by various artists, who have been invited to create specific games, objects or tools for participants to interact with in our new outdoor learning studios. Several of these artists will also be presenting their work in this year’s Edinburgh Art Festival.
During this workshop we will be making live works using our own bodies and objects together, with your family, around the question:
What are we doing when we aren’t doing anything?
Working with each other (literally) we will consider how much we can take away and how little we can get away with doing whilst making art. Humour and failure will be our guide as we make live works that exist only for the moment.
