workshops at surface gallery

As part of Surface's goal to connect art with the local community, we will be running a series of workshops through 2017 with resident artists and Surface alumni! 

The workshops are open to all and offer a great chance to develop, or learn, a new skill, meet people from the local community and challenge your own imagination.


abstract wood construction/box art

august 12th - paul henegan

10:30am - 1.30pm

£15 plus small materials charge of £3

We will look at others motivations, methods and processes but mainly a practical and playful ‘hands on’ workshop. We will experiment with ideas, composition, colour and joining options (e.g. gluing/nailing etc) before assembling. 

Please bring any of those interesting scraps, trinkets, treen*, talismans, treasures, ephemera, charms, bits and pieces you have been holding onto with the vague notion....“ONE Day I will do something with that”...WELL now is your chance!
*small wooden domestic objects from the old plural for ‘tree’. 

Paul is an experienced teacher who will introduce you to some surprisingly creative approaches to 3D designing/ sculpture and /or storytelling in relief constructions.
