Creating Forms for Flow
through Conversation with Water.

Weekend Workshop at The Old Mill House, Chalford, Gloucestershire.

May 12th and 13th 2018

Water moves in many elegant ways between stillness and turbulence, sometimes almost like a living organism These can be observed through interacting with the slow moving water in the mill leat , the rippling flow in the stream and in many table top experiments. These can engender wonder and may also tell us something about the inherent nature of this element so essential for life.
We will create a flowstream in clay so we can experiment with the shapes and the surfaces the water meets in a controlled flow situation . Here the conversation becomes more dynamic and the learning can be more meaningful- the water can educate us and maybe we educate the water.

There are various techniques for making permanent water sculptures for gardens or other spaces which we can talk about and some we can try if time allows.
