Join Yorkshire Sculpture Park for a Tin Decoration Workshop.

Work with illustrator Louise Lockhartto create unique, hangable, decorations from golden tomato puree tubes. Inspired by Mexican folk art, Louise has developed her signature paper cut outs into charming metal shapes.

Louise will open the workshop with a brief introduction to her work and her creative journey so far. Then she will demonstrate how to transform the tin tubes into a decoration by cutting out your shape and embossing with hand drawn lines – perfect for Christmas presents or to decorate your own tree.

The morning will be all about learning the possibilities of the material, experimenting, and making decorations, with Louise sharing a wonderful selection of resources to inspire you. In the afternoon you will develop the decoration ideas into a beautiful tin wreath, with Louise on hand to help you realise your design. You will learn how to create embossed decorations from recycled materials, develop your drawing skills, learn how to apply your drawings onto metal, and how to hang your pieces to create a bigger final piece.

What to bring to the workshop:

Any images of leaves, birds, animals that you find interesting (but they will provide examples). It is helpful for you to have some confidence in drawing but this is not essential. They can provide paper templates for people who are feeling nervous of drawing.
