Ever fancied trying your hand at stone-carving? Want to help make public art for Broomhill? Just want to have a go at bashing something with a hammer and chisel?
From October 17th-21st, sculptor Siobhan Morrison will be coming to Broomhill to facilitate stone carving workshops. In these sessions, you’ll get to help make sculptures for the upcoming Broomy’s Bees garden and the wider area of Broomhill. Linking the past to the future, these sculptures will be made using reclaimed stone from the Drumfrochar Road flats – currently in the process of being demolished – and mark the creative involvement of RIG Arts and the local residents in the regeneration of Broomhill.
Siobhan Morison is from Scotland but has travelled across Europe and further afield. She graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone, Dundee with BA (Hons) Fine Art, staying on to study MFA Art & Humanities.
Siobhan’s main medium is stone although drawing also plays an integral part of her art practice. Space, form and movement are very important in her work. The act of making 3D sculpture is not just seeing, it involves space and the body. Morison’s organic looking pieces have a sense that they have been caught at the point just before moving.
More information on how to take part in the workshops will be available soon, so keep your eyes peeled. Like our RIG Arts Facebook page, join ‘The Broomhill Project’ Facebook group or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
