Age 16+

part of Yorkshire Dance's Climate Encounters festival

Material Encounters investigates environmental perception through creative practice and the use of touch.

Two weeks prior to this workshop (1h 30) a handmade guidebook and materials will be posted out to each participant. The guide has been designed to cultivate sensory curiosity with found objects in the participants’ immediate localities through sculpture-forming, charcoal-drawing, map-making and clay-modelling.

The aim of the workshop is to explore ways in which we might perceive our surroundings differently in order to nurture a more empathetic way of interacting with materials and the materiality of our physical form.

This workshop will be taking place at Yorkshire Dance, 3 St Peter’s Square, Leeds LS9 8AH (subject to change).
