Art Workshop – Exploring Sculpture and 3D

13th September 2021 @ 10:30 am - 23rd November 2021 @ 7:00 pm

£5 – £15

Explore the art of sculpture and 3D models in these hands-on creative workshops. These artist facilitated sessions will enable you to experiment with creative techniques and explore new ideas in a welcoming social environment.

During weekly workshops, participants are encouraged to experiment with different materials, observe everyday objects in a new way and to consider how we interact with the spaces and places all around us, using the current contemporary art exhibitions as inspiration. As a group we’ll play on themes of shape, food, people and spaces whilst considering ‘who are we?’ and ‘how do we connect to each other?’.

All adults welcome (18+) but we particularly recommend these workshops for mature adults (eg people who are retired, working part time, new visitors to Nottingham Contemporary/art galleries, with some interest in the arts, who like to socialise, be creative and/or who enjoy learning and doing new things).

You can choose to join us in-person on mornings throughout October or take part in evening sessions online:

In person workshops – Mondays 10.30-12pm; 13th Sept (taster session), 4, 11, 18 and 25 Oct 2021

Online workshops – Tuesdays 6-7pm; 19 Oct (taster session), 2, 9, 16 and 23 Nov 2021

  • Workshops are standalone; it is encouraged though not compulsory to attend each of the four sessions.
  • No prior knowledge/experience is required, suitable for all levels.
  • You do not need to have seen the exhibition or visited the gallery.
  • In person workshops are limited to max. 15 participants.
  • Art materials are provided.
