Workshop at Arnolfini

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to have fun running some activities at Arnolfini's monthly "We are Family" day.

The activities were inspired by the current exhibitons: Michael Dean's "Introduction of Muscle", which consists of installations and sculptures which visitors are invited to experience through touch and include 3 dimensional fonts.

One of the activities was to feel inside the box and draw what the hidden object felt like! This made for a valuable lesson in drawing texture and shape and also using imagination to draw.

The tie-dye washing line activity was inspired by Mierle Laderman's "domestic" conceptual art projects and photographs.
