Further to my last post, this week we've been asking local and national artists and architects to support our project.
Our first sponsor comes from award winning sculptor Fred Gordon, who has exhibited in London, Bath and Bristol, to name but a few.

Keep your eyes peeled for more donations - some exciting materials have been pledged!

In order for our project to be successful, we must raise £100 in order to rent the gallery space at Paradise Works in which the final workshop will take place.
Renting this space will provide students with the invaluable opportunity to engage with such an exciting organisation, as well as constructing parts of their intervention on or near the site.
Over the next few weeks, we will be asking local artists and architects to support the relationship between the two by donating, as well as organising a variety of fundraising events.

Driven by materiality, contemporary artist Precious Innes often uses throwaway and ad hoc substances to create pieces that question her medium's original function. To do this, Precious uses different techniques and magnitude of manipulation, which alter her materials' structure.
Precious says, 'Exploring a material's structure is vital to the playful process of my work; often using gravity as a means to push the object, forcing the object to react in a way that it may become free standing.'
Furthermore, Precious chooses to work with a mixture of objects that are relatable to the everyday, as well as those that are in a pure or raw state, such as plaster or expanding foam.
Personally, I enjoy Precious' work due to her use of readily available materials - something that we are encouraging during this year's events programme.

Interested in our collaborator Paradise Works? - This Saturday (3rd March), Paradise Work’s latest exhibitions opens to the public!
The exhibition, ‘Tipping the Scales’, focuses on sculptural work, and features UK based artists at various stages in their careers.
Curated by Kieran Leach and Precious Innes, the show exhibits a sense of art imitating life, and approaches play and societal pressures.
We’ll be heading down on Saturday, if you want to join, message Sandhya.
If not, please feel free to head down by yourselves - The exhibition is open on weekends from 1-5pm, or by appointment.
