Take part in our workshops and contribute to a large-scale art installation celebrating the diversity of communities across Leeds.
Book yourself on to one of the plaster casting workshops at Left Bank Leeds (various dates in June and September). You will learn the basics of plaster casting from artist Eva Mileusnic and make plaster pieces that will contribute to the large-scale art installation of over 1,000 pairs of ‘feet’ which will be exhibited at Left Bank Leeds in January 2019.
All materials will be provided and no prior experience is needed to partake. Children are welcome (accompanied by an adult).
You’ll cast a pair of stylised ‘feet’ using existing rubber moulds made from lasts (metal structures used for making shoes). These have sections of the world map on the soles, allowing people to choose an area of the world that has significance to them.
As a participant, you will be invited to the opening night of the installation to reserve your ‘feet’, which will be delivered back your workshop venue for collection after the exhibition.
Tickets are via a donation with a suggested donation of £2.50 (should this be too much please feel free to pay what you can, and if you would like to pay more we always welcome additional support).
These workshops are part of a larger project celebrating the diversity of communities across Leeds. It has been commissioned by the Donut Group, a network of arts venues operating in neighbourhoods outside Leeds city centre. This project has been made possible with thanks to funding from Leeds Inspired.
