Kinetic Illusion Sculpture Design- Bridget Riley inspires optical illusion patterns on circles, which will create wheels. This will be assembled with a pulley system so that the elements of the sculpture spin.

For Upper 2nd, Lower 3rd and Upper 3rd Boys

This autumn the Hayward Gallery is hosting a major retrospective of Bridget Riley. SPARTA is organising a workshop for older SPJ boys (Upper2nd, Lower 3rd and Upper 3rd) to create kinetic optical illusion sculptures inspired by her work. Optical illusion patterns on both paper and clay will be used to create wheels. The wheels will then be assembled with a pulley system so that the elements of the sculpture spin. The workshop will be taught by two professional artists.

This hands-on session focuses on spatial thinking and problem solving, and challenges your presentation skills and attention to detail.

Please email Pippa Gravestock at pippa.gravestock@btinternet.com with any questions you might have.

PLEASE NOTE: Pupils name, parent name and emergency contact number will be shared with members of the SPARTA committee hosting the event, in case of emergency.
