Venue: Old Mill House, Chalford, GL6 8NX
Flowform vessels embodying rhythmic flow were discovered in 1970 by John Wilkes but they have a timeless quality and are always finding new applications. The forms are used in many agricultural, horticultural and ecological systems and also have aesthetic qualities many people find supportive.
Although some designs have taken much time and skill to create the basic principles are simple – anyone can work with them creatively and it can be an enriching experience to do so.
The workshop will start with an introduction to the nature of harmonic flow in water and its capacity for rhythm. There will be demonstrations of how the Flowform principle can be embodied before we play with clay and water. We can then use pumps, pipes , boards, tanks etc to explore flow possibilities in channels and vessels .
The various methods for making permanent sculptures can be explained but it will not be possible to create a permanent form to take away at the end. Forms in wet clay could be taken for subsequent moulding if desired.
