About Teacher CPD: Textile Sculptures

Explore new methods for using textiles in the classroom inspired by Jonathan Baldock’s Touch Wood exhibition in The Weston Gallery. The exhibition features new works in ceramic, textile and basketry that were all created by the artist especially for YSP. Together they take inspiration from the seasons, paganism, myth, folklore, and our deep connection to nature.

Teachers and artist-educators are invited to learn new methods for teaching art with textiles to encourage a multidimensional approach. Inspired by Baldock’s 2D and 3D artworks we will use textiles to create three inter-relating art-objects that are rich in colour and symbolism.

This session will begin with a visit to The Weston to see the Touch Wood exhibition. The remainder of the session will be held in the Hayloft Studio at YSP Learning.

Tea and coffee will be provided in a break halfway through the session and teachers are invited to extend their visit and enjoy the exhibitions at YSP afterwards.  

Attendees will receive an email before the session with further details and directions.
