About the Event

​Teachers will have the opportunity to view work by Laura Ellen Bacon who works with sticks and hedgerow materials gathered at Welbeck. Her forms are at once strange and familiar, straddling the natural world and the man-made.​

An artist led workshop by Ruth Waller, a textile artist who works on the Welbeck estate, will provide teachers will the skills, knowledge and ideas to use back in the classroom or outdoor environment. We will also explore how to use recycled materials, our senses and how stories can be told through sculpture.

Resources will be provided but we also invite you to bring any objects you may have collected, either natural or man-made.

The Nottinghamshire Creative Schools Network is a new opportunity in partnership with The Mighty Creatives and The Cotgrave Candleby Lane Teaching School Alliance to share great arts practice and be inspired by new ideas. There will be a textile focus to this event, however the network is relevant to all teachers of the arts in primary education. The event will be hosted by Dayle Green, Education and Engagement Manager at the Harley Gallery.

You will be working with Ruth Waller, responding to Laura Ellen Bacon’s immersive installation , Laid, which opens at Harley on the 28th July and finishes on the 10th October. http://www.harleygallery.co.uk/exhibition/laura-ellen-bacon/

Laura Ellen Bacon knots, weaves, twists and plaits natural materials by hand to create monumental site-specific sculptures. They envelop and embrace their surroundings, yet despite their scale, the intricacy of Bacon’s work creates a nest-like intimacy. Her forms are at once strange and familiar, straddling the natural world and the man-made.

The Mighty Creatives Arts Consultant for Nottinghamshire will be available throughout to answer any questions or provide information for interested schools on Artsmark and Arts Awards.

There will be time built in throughout for discussion, networking and 1:1 conversation.
