This summer’s art school workshop focuses on exploring simultaneously illusionary and real movement, through the creation of a small enamel automaton. You will be shown how to make mechanisms to create movement within a sculpture and a range of expressive gestural mark making techniques in enamel.
Day 1 will focus on the design of a simple automaton, the making of a copper base to hold the mechanism and the embellishment of the copper with enamel, exploring different techniques to create abstract dynamic patterns.
Day 2 will concern creating the mechanism and assembling the enamel and mechanical parts to complete the automaton.
