Teachers discuss art at a teacher studio

Roy Matthews

Visit the RA on a Friday evening to unwind, make art and network with other teachers at this creative session led by practising artist Grace Adam.

Not much space or time in the classroom? Want to reconnect to your own practice and interests?

It is often challenging to make meaningful 3D work with limited time, space and resources. Inspired by the structures of Phyllida Barlow RA we will look at how to take 2D into 3D and how to record that work. This workshop will encourage participants to explore new techniques and investigate new materials and ways of making to help you refresh your practice, equipping you with new ideas to take back to the classroom.
