A process of artistic activities designed to cultivate the capacity to experience ‘Form’ and to nourish a sense of relationship to others and our natural environment.

By actively sculpting the clay substance, we experience the ‘form’ of the clay changing and yet the material remains the same. Later we recognize in sculptural form, qualities familiar to our daily experience.(Example: we feel more buoyant and energetic at times, and more sluggish and heavy in others.)

As this language of form develops and we explore movement and space, the participant gains an artistic  perception by challenging to observe and think about their inner world of experiences (such  feelings as sympathy and antipathy). This is achieved by creating a sculpture, which allows the invisible human experiences (such as joy or sorrow),to show itself in its outer form. These experiences or emotions cannot be seen usually, we cannot weigh or measure them or find there basic parts or atoms, but we can Know them and we can create Forms for them. ‘We just have to close our eyes’.

By creating one sculptural form in relationship to another, a dynamic space is created between both forms. As with every human encounter or relationship they are unique in character and form. This sculptural exercise helps us experience that these relational forms (example: parent and child) are also something we creatively shape and transform. The group of participants will engage in social sculpture, thereby creating a group sculpture together.

This ability to work creatively in a community effort is what shapes the fabric of social life.

The participants will develop artistic faculties and capacities that can mature to greater clarity, allowing their creativity to be individualised and self-directed.

This will provide the skills and confidence to pursue artistic activity, creative development and the artistic bases for designing objects in craft and industry.
