Trainee teacher sessions: sculpture
Make art in a relaxed environment at this informal practical session specifically designed for trainee teachers.
Artist Lydia Hardwick leads a fun and informal session focused on sculptural techniques in clay and plaster.
You will have the chance to experiment with basic hand-building techniques such as slab building and coiling, giving you confidence in building form and shape. You will also learn how to create plaster casts with clay.
Throughout the session we will look at examples of how these techniques can be used to create enjoyable and meaningful sessions in the classroom.
These informal practical sessions are specifically designed for trainee teachers. Each workshop will include discussions around how to formulate ideas and take them back to the classroom. They are also an opportunity to meet other people studying to be teachers and to make art.
Lydia Hardwick graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2013. Primarily using clay, her practice engages with formal aspects of sculptural ceramics, in addition to making design objects. She leads workshops in museums and galleries across the UK and has exhibited internationally. She collaborated with Assemble on their Turner Prize winning project Granby Four Streets, and her designs for this project can be found in the V&A’s permanent collection.
