Blackhorse Workshop Takeover – Touch Wood: or Sense and Sculptability

July 8, 2017

Photography: Agnese Sanvito

4—6.30pm

Blackhorse Workshop, 1–2 Sutherland Rd Path, Walthamstow E17 6BX

Free, Ages 16+, materials provided, no experience necessary

Unleash your inner sculptor by working with an assistant to create a unique wooden sculpture. The twist? You will be blindfolded, relying on touch and instinct to guide you through the design and construction of your sculpture.

Through this undertaking you will be forced to take a non-visual approach to making, responding through your other senses. Working in pairs, you’ll take turns to be either the ‘artist’ or artist’s assistant. Your assistant will be on hand to cut and drill the materials as directed by you.
