Our first workshop this year was quite brilliant. We had a fantastic 6 day sculpting workshop instructed by our current resident artist Phillips Nzekwe from the 16th to the 21st of January.
The participants had the chance to make all sorts of animal, human and inanimate objects using gravel, sawdust and wire to create sculptures that were as diverse as their personalities.
Here is a sneak peak for those who missed out.
So, the original idea was to make something like this…well not exactly, but using the same technique.
After a few instructions from the teacher,the class kicked off with the eager participants readt to create something they could proudly show at the end of the workshop.
Some got the hang of it…
Some almost made it..
And it proved to be very hard work with others working on a collaborative piece together.
But finally everyone was happy and they all walked away with the sculptures they had made. Congratulations guyz and we hope to see you during the next workshop.
