Grandparents and Grandchildren’s soft sculpture workshop
Gallery Lane Cove, 2016
Lane Cove Council Seniors week program
32 grandparents and grandchildren took part in morning and afternoon workshops introducing participants to the soft sculpture medium. The workshop took place in partnership with Lane Cove Council’s seniors week program and in conjunction with Gallery Lane Cove’s The Charged Object soft sculpture exhibition.
Despite the generational gap participants came together in creating innovative and decorative sculpture gloves using a variety of fabric and soft sculpture materials. Grandparents were able to take the opportunity to teach their grandchildren valuable sewing and stitching techniques which made for a very fun and informative school holiday activity.
