In December 2015 I was selected to run two 'Studio Days' for ReachOutRCA.
ReachOutRCA's aim is to involve a wider community in the activities of the college. Studio days were aimed to allow students from the RCA to share their practice with students from schools and undergraduate courses.
I worked with a group of BA students from UCA and year 10 students from Burlington Danes Academy.
The workshop was entitled 'Curious Objects'. It was designed to demonstrate how iterative drawing and making processes are used in my practice to re-imagine our everyday objects.
Between each stage of making and drawing I provided the participants with a different provocation. these ranged from finding an opposite function, or intended user to creating a hyper focussed interaction with one or other of our senses.
