Social bubbles and social Bubble'O's (by Kenny Pittock, 2020)
Becoming Us series
Objects play a huge role in moulding and holding our daily lives and identities. In this workshop devised by the SIGNAL Curators, artist Kenny Pittock will impart the sculpting skills to re-create sentimental objects from your memories. Learn the essentials of hand-building with air-dry clay, and explore how feelings imprint on perceptions of treasured objects.
This workshop is restricted to participants aged 16 to 25.
This workshop is part of the Becoming Us series exploring identity within the LGBTIQA+ youth community, inspired by the Immigration Museum’s new exhibition Becoming You: An Incomplete Guide and its celebration of coming-of-age stories. Tickets to this onsite event include free entry to the exhibition on the day at Immigration Museum.
