Sculptor using mainly recycled metal and found materials to create organic forms inspired by nature. Creates site-specific work in the environment. Fiona’s work reflects an interest in our relationship with the natural world, nature’s cyclical persistence and the essence of life. Fiona’s drawings inform mixed media sculptural pieces wrought as primal, nest-like structures, often as 3d drawings in space, using found and recycled materials. Alongside her practice as an artist, Fiona teaches art and runs community projects. She is a SAW rep, Black Swan Arts Trustee and the curator and manager of step in stone.
Workshop: Wirework – forms inspired by nature
MORNING WORKSHOP: Tuesday 6th October, 9.30am – 1pm at Black Swan Arts, Round Tower Gallery BA11 1BB
A chance to explore 2-d and 3-d work in wire, recycled and found materials. Suitable for all ages from 8 years old upwards.
Students will explore concepts around the theme of quarries, their re-colonisation by nature and fossils from the carboniferous period. From imagery and resources provided, (eg. silver birch seeds, fossils and catkins), students will experiment with a range of techniques to create small 2-d or 3-d pieces for your garden or interior. Initial line drawings will lead to a simplfied design for your wire template. Various wires will be used to make your final piece. A range of skills will be taught – from design to wirework. For more decorative results other recycled materials may be added. All materials will be provided. Suitable for all abilities.
Held at the Black Swan Arts Centre, there will be an opportunity to explore the centre and our exhibition there.
