An exhibition of immersive & interactive artworks by Lou Baker, Juliet Duckworth & Alyson Minkley

Come and visit Social Scaffolding at The Galleries, it’s free and not like a normal art gallery with “Do not touch” signs, in fact we encourage you to explore the artworks & invite you to get involved.

Become a Living Sculpture posing or performing in Lou Baker’s quirky knitted, wearable art or contribute to the growing immersive Social Knitwork installation. Join Lou to knit, knot, plait, crochet or even make a pompom.

Help Juliet Duckworth weave a giant nest with local recycled resources. Can we build as successfully as the rooks whose nests feature in Urban Rookery, bringing the outside inside to help us contemplate human relationships with nature?

Or join Alyson Minkley for a social stitching session contributing your own thoughts and stories about isolation and connection to the cocreated work Synapse – a series of human-scale cocoons that you can even climb into for a moment of calm contemplation.

Drop in 11am-4pm Thursdays-Sundays from 15-30 July.
