About the Course

Use scrap, found, traditional and alternative materials to explore sculptural methods and concepts.

Who is this course for
Use scrap, found, traditional and alternative materials to explore sculptural methods and concepts including kinetic, interactive, performance and time-based work. Develop your own project, with support from the tutor. Suitable for all levels, beginners to advanced.

What does this course cover
The course aims to broaden the range of materials you can draw upon to make a sculpture. You will be shown how to develop techniques for completing kinetic, performance, time-based, interactive and traditional sculpture.

You will be introduced to, and use diverse ways of assembling found objects. Depending on your interests, you will work with some of the following:

1. Kinetic Sculpture: use of techniques to create movement i.e. motors, wind, water power.

2. Interactive sculpture: use of techniques to make sculpture that others can interact with.

3. Time-based sculpture: using video and audio to document the development and completion of work.

4. Performance sculpture: for example, demonstration of how to interact with the sculpture.

By the end you will be able:
1. To work in a supported way toward the completion of an experimental piece of sculpture.
2. To make informed choices about methods and materials for sculpture.
3. To demonstrate the use of new methods for completing sculptures.
4. To demonstrate the use of one or more methods for recording or representing sculpture e.g. video/audio
