Student Agency and Steampunk

with Hamish Betts

Day 2 Session


Suitable for: PRIMARY

Join international educator, Hamish Betts creating mixed media sculptures that embrace the fundamentals of ‘construction’ and ‘modelling’ to develop an understanding of sculpture that considers all the elements of a successful art piece.

Too often when we are working with students, they focus on one or two of the elements of art, whilst abandoning the rest.
Hamish’s holistic approach to art reminds students and teachers to have a fuller, richer vision of their work. In this session, you will need to bring an assortment of found objects that can be upcycled, recycled and repurposed. We will enhance your materials with a goodie bag of materials that will help you to take your next 3D unit of work to the next level.

Hamish will take us through similar techniques to his Steampunk workshops, but then turn this on its head, imaging creations that burst with colour, expression and imagination.
