Sculpture Big Day In – Free Event

16th July 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

MiC trip to Burghley Sculpture Garden

We are very excited to announce our latest FREE Big Day In event, hosted at Oakley Vale Community Centre on Saturday 16th July 2016, this time focusing on the concept of sculpture.

What our sculpture day will involve

There will be workshops held throughout the day, led by three professional artists. We like for everyone to get involved, so you’ll be given the chance to try out creating your very own sculpture. Our Big Days In are suitable for all ages, so make sure to grab your chance to have fun and be creative!

You’ll be able to try your hand at wood carving with Liam Hadjipetrou, create a giant bird mask with Carol Parker and contribute to a giant inflatable structure with Sophie Cullinan. There will also be music from the Oakley Rangers.

The event has been created by the Oakley Vale Arts Panel, who are a group of local people brought together through their shared interest in contemporary art. Over the coming months, the panel will be engaging an artist to create a sculpture for Oakley Vale – there will be an opportunity on the day to chat to the panel about what they have been up to and let us know what you would like to see in Oakley Vale.

Are you interested?

LOCATION: Oakley Vale Community Centre, 20 Butland Road, Corby, NN18 8JF

TIMINGS: 12pm – 4pm

REMEMBER, this is a drop-in event, so you’re more than welcome to pop in for a little while or stay for the whole session! Refreshments are provided so come and grab yourself a cuppa and experience art through sculpture.

Get involved

Do you have an interest in contemporary art? If you are an Oakley Vale resident and would like to get involved with the panel, please contact us.

This event has been generously supported by funding from the Margaret Griffin Community Fund through Northamptonshire Community Foundation.
