    I love this workshop! It’s so exciting not quite knowing how all the ‘juggling’ and rebalancing will shape your sculpture. I definitely want to try this with my students.

    At Crompton Primary School we have really enjoyed experimenting with some of the ideas on your website. We linked this lesson idea with Year 2’s Great Fire of London topic, using the colours we associated with that alongside shapes reminiscent of Ben Nicholson’s work. Children worked in pairs to produce a wonderful variety of sculpture and they loved the process of balancing line and shape and experimenting with joining techniques. We will look again at our sculpture this week and focus on composition, producing abstract paintings. Thanks for the inspiration.

      I agree with Paula! This is wonderful work – really! So great to see pupils being able to work ideas through sculpturally! Fabulous! Please do stay in touch.

    Hi Paula/Sheila
    Next year we will be doing this session with Year 5 after looking at ideas in your exemplar plan. Building on the idea of taking risk and ‘juggling’ the sculpture to make it more exciting I will be sharing the work of Yinka Shonibare as well as Ben Nicholson for the children to take inspiration. He has some exciting precariously imbalanced sculpture. We might add Dutch wax resist pattern to the shapes available in the ‘elements’. I would love to see you do a session which incorporates his work.
