Woodhouse Art students get 'flockOmania'

Dated: 24 January 2017

On Wednesday 18th January, our art students visited London Metropolitan University to take part in art workshops, learning techniques such as water casting, plastic manipulation and soft sculpture.
 
 
 Art students (L–R) Yuhong Wang, Tracey Huynh and Elena Parry
  
Students then went to see the flockOmania exhibition which was showing at The Cass gallery downstairs. The students took part in a collaborative installation which included the opportunity to speak to the artist Zoe Robertson.

Award winning jewellery artist Zoe Robertson’s studio practice explores themes relating to jewellery within performance. She creates theatrically sized jewellery, experiments on the edges of the discipline and enjoys working collaboratively’.

Woodhouse art student Tracey Huynh said...
 
“The flockOmania Flash Factory was an extremely rewarding and inviting experience – we were able to participate in various workshops such as moulding plastic and wire, and oxidising aluminium to create life-sized jewellery which would later culminate in an installation. We visited Zoe Robertson’s interactive exhibition where we could play with and wear her pieces – it reminded me of how fun and unified art could be... amazing!”

“I like Zoe Robertson’s work because we were able to touch her pieces of work, which is so different to other exhibitions.” said Omar Aqil.

“I really enjoyed this jewellery workshop, it completely changed my perspective on jewellery. I particularly liked Zoe Robertson's flockOmania exhibition, it was so interesting to touch and wear the giant necklace sculptures. Zoe encouraged us to pick up the objects and play with them, and I was left feeling 'switched on' by these fantastic sculptures.”
 
Woodhouse College Head of Art, Joel Horner said... 
 
"This trip was an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience of working in a university art school environment. Experiencing a collaborative project and working with a practicing artist to create a ‘necklace the size of an elephant’ was quite a challenge! London Met University Sir John Cass Foundation hosted a useful and engaging day that I’m sure the students will remember."
