Making things that disappear | Workshop with Jack Brown

Date: Saturday 9th March, 11:00am – 12:30pm
Location: Ground Floor studios, Paradise Works, East Philip Street, Salford, Manchester,M3 7LE
Price: FREE!
Ages: Suitable for all ages. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.


Be part of a ‘sound pipe orchestra’, press found objects into phenolic foam, carve supermarket soap into palm sized sculptural foams and make a shoe-based artwork.

You are invited to work alongside Jack in his studio. Tasks will include testing out new sculptural foams in relation to Brown’s ongoing ‘soaps’ series, making a text-based artwork that will fit into your shoe, experimenting with found/collected objects pressed into phenolic foam and working together to produce a momentary collaborative public sound work.

A morning of making things that will eventually seep back into the world, dissolve into bits or be worn down into nothing.

This workshop coincides with a borrowing of bones, an offsite exhibition from Slugtown featuring four artists from across the UK and The Netherlands: Jack Brown, Isabella Clark, Joss Heierli and Oona Wilkinson at Paradise Works, Manchester.

a borrowing of bones is on view from 9 – 29 March. Open by appointment. Please email a week in advance to arrange a time.
