In her exhibition a e i o u, artist Michelle Nikou draws on Surrealism in a reflective and productive way to transform mundane domestic objects and materials into sculptures of humour, poignancy and marvel. In this two-day masterclass, children and accompanying adults will learn to make moulds and to cast into metal, transforming a hand-made sculpture into a lasting object, under the direct guidance of Michelle Nikou. This is a unique opportunity for child and adult to work together to create an original artwork.
Day One (13 August 10am-12pm): After a private exhibition tour with Michelle, particpants will discuss and develop their concepts into an original artwork, and prepare a mould ready for casting.
Day Two (14 August 10am-1pm): Particpants will cast their artwork, then refine their piece using metalworking tools. The finished work can then be displayed as a keepsake, or threaded on to leather to be worn.
