Clay sculpture workshop: Ordinary to Extraordinary

Lauren Ilsley and pupils from local schools

Anthology Deptford Foundry and no format Gallery, Arches 29-33 Rolt St SE8 5JB

22 Sep 10.00 – 13.00

The children will be introduced by exhibiting artists to the exhibition Supposedly Predictable Phenomena by the collective [ALLOY] at no format gallery. They will then take part in a series of workshops based on the themes in the exhibition. Two slab-building clay sculpture workshops will, by making irregular forms from regular elements, investigate how the simple becomes complex and the standard becomes unique. The workshop will stress the uniqueness of each child’s creative responses and decisions.

This workshop is made possible with the support of the team at Anthology Deptford Foundry.



Performance/installation: Problem Solver

Jack Brown, Annamaria Kardos and pupils from Tidemill Academy

Foyer Area, Deptford Lounge, Giffin Square SE8 4RH

Performance Tue 26 Sep: 14.30-15.00

Artist/educator Jack Brown will work with artist Annamaria Kardos and 25 primary school pupils from Tidemill Academy to ask ‘What have I learned that I’ve not been taught?’. After two classroom-based workshops the pupils and Annamaria will draw and write their responses directly onto school tables in a performance/installation at Deptford Lounge Library.

This is a new iteration of an ongoing project by Jack Brown which facilitates other artists to work in education settings. The artist identifies a problem or question in their practice and Jack leads workshops with the artist and pupils to grapple with it, in which the pupils take the lead as problem solvers, brainstorming ideas and potential solutions.
