Sculpture Making with Lucy

We had a great time with Lucy making sculptures, you can see some of them above. Well done to everyone that gave it a go. To find out more about what’s coming up next in the Give it a Go workshop series click here


Have you ever wanted to try your arm at sculpture?

In this workshop for beginners, Lucy Cran will take you through a series of instructions with a range of materials (cardboard tubes, sticks, foam, wood off cuts, fabric, string, tape e.g) and a set of prompts (e.g: make something as long as your arm, make something to look through, make something to help you listen, make a zigzag, make something that rolls).

When you’ve finished making, you can take a picture of your sculpture in a specially created, lit area so you can keep a record of your creations.

Date: Sat June 25

Time: 2pm – 4pm

Location: 49 – 51 High Street, Crawley (former ASK restaurant)

It’s completely free to attend and you can drop in for 10 mins or stay for the whole two hours. Places are limited so to confirm your space book in advance. Book here.

Lucy Cran is a co-founder of Leap Then Look with Bill Leslie. They create art works, participatory projects, workshops and events for people of all ages and abilities. Their focus is on working together, inspiring playfulness, inquisitiveness and experimentation. They use exciting and unconventional approaches, including object making, performance, installation, film, and photography. They believe that contemporary art practice should and can be made available and accessible to everyone and that we can all benefit from engaging with new ways of looking, making and thinking.

Since Spring 2019 they have run participatory projects at institutions including Tate, Royal Academy, Phoenix Art Space, Orleans House Gallery, Photoworks, Brighton Photo Fringe, Thomas Tallis School, West Rise School, Hemmingway Design Events, and Universities of Brighton, Kingston, Westminster and UCL Institute of Education.

The Enliven: Give it a Go workshop programme is produced by Creative Crawley and funded by Crawley Town Centre Business Improvement District.
