Weekend Wire Sculpture Workshop // Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 July
Time: 4 & 5 July, 10am - 1pm
Location: The Biscuit Factory Gallery
Hosted by: Zoe Robinson
Suitable for ages 15+
Learn how to use wire to make your very own animal sculptures!
The theme for this session is dogs, so bring in some inspiration for your final piece.
An inspiring and practical course that will teach you free-form wire sculpture techniques to bring your own ideas to life. You can make whatever you like - an animal or human figure, an abstract form or decorative piece. You can incorporate a range of other materials into your design. We supply various materials, but you can bring along anything you may want to included.
Ideal for those who have previously attended a wire workshop and want to further their skills and knowledge.
Zoe Robinson is a sculptor based in the North East who has taught drawing and sculpture for the past ten years. Zoe studied an MA in Fine Art at Northumbria University in 1999 and her distinct style has developed over the years.
Zoe’s current work is animal studies in wire and mixed media. Birds with their fleeting presence pronounce themselves with song and glimmer, they endure throughout all seasons. Their shapes are vague, shadowy, uncertain and unclear and it is this moment Zoe tries to depict them by drawing with wire in air.
Zoe explains: “To see animals in their natural environment is an engaging experience, however brief. Our glimpses of them are often transient and intangible and their retreat so definite. I marvel at their private lives.’’
