Unblocking your Creativity with Jenny Pope

Saturday 27th April at 10:00am Sunday 28th April at 4:00pm

We are delighted to host a weekend workshop with Jenny Pope. She is a very well known and respected Edinburgh based sculptor, with a BA in Ceramics and an MA in Sculpture from Edinburgh College of Art. She makes sculptures and installations using found and recycled objects exploring uncertainty and change. She is drawn to explore emotions around climate crisis and how to bring hope into these issues and our perception of survival. She has run many creative workshops and groups and has also been a coach and mentor. You can see her thought-provoking witty work on her website www.jennypope.com, Instagram @jennypopeartist. The attached image is of a series by Jenny called 5 Tools to Evoke Change.

This workshop is about shaking up your creativity with a focus on 3D form and structure. Maybe you are a painter wishing to try out 3D ideas and revitalize your practice, or a maker who wants to expand your repertoire and create sculptural forms?

Jenny will guide you through a series of exercises/experiments with recycled materials and found objects in order to articulate your own visual language helping to think about how we view things in 3D. A playful, experimental approach is encouraged – this is more about process than end product.

You will use non precious materials such as packaging, cardboard, clay and reuse everyday items. You will be using tools and our own hands to mold and form materials into shaped and structures and take inspiration from a range of sculptors, and have time to discuss our ideas and processes together.

Open to all levels and abilities.

Many materials will be provided, but you will also be encouraged to collect your own range of materials and objects and bring them along.
