Part 1 - 1st August 10 am - 11:30 am - Via Zoom An online workshop discussing the creation and value of feminist public sculpture with Polly Gardiner.
Part 2 - 8th August 11 am - 4 pm - at The Potting Shed A workshop to make models and sketches for monumental works of feminist sculpture.
Feminist art has suffered from a lack of resources over generations. Whilst artists have worked around these limitations, there are few truly monumental works of feminist art. The open sides of The Potting Shed structure and its real connection with the sculpture park and the world outside are an open invitation to rethink the scale of feminist art and to literally put work out there. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss ideas in Part 1 online and then come together in Part 2 to make models and sketches.
The gardens will be open from 11 am to 4 pm for visitors to drop in and explore the exhibition at their leisure in a safe and socially distanced fashion. Time slots will be unrestricted for the day but please register your interest through our online booking form to help us regulate the flow of people throughout the weekend.
