RHA Kids Workshop
Magnetic Story Cubes Sculpture Workshop
with artist Anishta Chooramun
Ages 8 – 12
2pm – 4.30pm, Saturday 12th October
In this workshop, children will learn to make their own personal story cube through drawing and origami. After working individually, children will bring their blocks together to build a sculptural composition. Children will develop stories as a group. By making simple changes to the building structure, the group will explore open-ended story possibilities. Children will engage in creative thinking, team-work, problem solving, and material exploration, and learn skills including origami folding, building, sculpting, engineering, and storytelling.
