Hanging mobiles, transform spaces both kinetically and decoratively. They inspire imagination, playfulness and curiousity and have become popular tools for development amoungst babies and young children.
In this relaxing 2 hour workshop we will design and decorate a ceramic and wood wall mobile. Local ceramic artist Yani will provide a selection of ceramic pieces inspired by the natural world, and wooden sticks plus all decorative materials.
You will begin by sketching your mobile design, selecting your peices and finally crafting the mobile. This workshop, based at Birch & Star is created for mums with pre-crawlers. Head & Hands provides a socialble get together supporting mindful making, togetherness and creativity. You are welcome to bring your babies along with you to the class, there is space for buggies, a nappy changing station and facilities to heat bottled milk.
The class is hosted by Head & Hands and led by local ceramic artist Yani Sylva Delgado. Born in Ecuador, now living and working in Walthamstow, she has a studio at Blackhorse Workshop. Her peices 'strive to express the beauty that comes from imperfect symmetry in the natural world".
Additional mobile pieces and parts will be available for purchase to take away in case you want to make one with your family at home.
Light refreshments will be provided.
