What can you see deep in the sea? workshop with Piotr Karski

This October we’ve welcomed author and illustrator Piotr Karski for an artist residency. As part of this Piotr is making an exhibition of sculptures inspired by the wonderful art created at our What Can You See Deep in the Sea? workshop last weekend.

Together we made a submarine ready to explore the deep sea and then, using head-torch lights, we created art depicting the types of things we imagined we would see once we had arrived in the depths of the sea. Check out some of the fab fun we got up to in the workshop:

One family loved the event so much that they wrote a poem summing up their day with us:

Another family told us it was the best £3 they’d spent on a creative workshop ever. It doesn’t get better than that, does it?

We’re so glad that Piotr’s residency has got off to an amazing start and can’t wait to see what wonderful work he creates over the next week. Not to forget Piotr’s next workshops, Fear – My Wonderful Pet, taking place Tuesday 23rd October and Thursday 25th October. If you would like to join in the fun and get creative with our artist in residence there are still tickets available - we'd love to see you there!
