I think we all enjoyed our little venture into “sculpture” with the excellent two sessions run by Geoff. Starting with a comprehensive bit of chat about the basic types of sculpture we may generally encounter. Subsequently we were let loose with a myriad of materials to use, kindly brought in by Geoff. Paper sticks, beads, veneer strips, copper wire, wooden bases, willow wands, PVA glue, clay, string and a host of additional materials including pliers and other tools. So….thinking caps on….what do we “sculpt” ? Well… one could see various brains ticking over to come up with innovative ideas and looking at some of the photos they did just that. Geoff wandered round offering advice and encouragement and soon lots of weird and wonderful shapes were evolving. I think most of us completed a sculpture and were working out how we could safely transport them home without them falling apart in the boot or back seat !
I’d like to offer sincere thanks Geoff and Jacqui as I am sure the rest of TAG would too. It was good fun and who knows – we may possibly have a budding Rodin in our midst ! ~Roger Backhouse (TAG)
