Our Workshops Primary schools Tate Exchange

Christ the King Primary School join Tate Exchange – Thursday 25th January

Today ArtLab @ Tate Exchange welcomed Christ the King Primary who we worked with over four days in the summer of 2017.  After exploring the Materials and Objects rooms at Tate Modern and testing out Superflex’s swings they took part in workshops with Reading artists and fellow co-researchers exploring the senses in sculpture and video projects.  Here is our video diary:

En-masse clay sculpting of the face of the one standing in front of you.


Admiring faces; looking at what each other has made.

Onto wrapping – how can we work together to complete cover the object, transforming it?
