UNDER/EXPOSED: Carl Gabriel 3D Carnival Sculpture workshop

Making Room, The Department Store, 248 Ferndale Road, London SW9 8FR

Thursday 21st September 2017

12pm - 2pm


Come and join Carl Gabriel, international sculptural artist and wire bender for a talk and workshop.

This intimate hands on workshop will allow you to experience Carl’s method for creating 3D sculptural art which is used to create large scale installations, carnival costumes and imposing carnival structures.

Carnival Arts Specialist Carl Gabriel was born in Trinidad, and came to London in 1964. While working as a specialist sheet metal worker, he trained in photography and moved into a career as a photographer. He was involved early on with carnival as a pan player with Ebony Steel Band, and went on to co found Star Dust Mas and creating his own Mas Band, Misty Carnival Club. Carl began to build up an archive of Carnival from 1973. With his skilled photography he documented the Mas and the Pan Bands each year. He also started to make carnival art.

Carl Gabriel specialises in wire-formed sculptures that are presented at Carnivals across Britain as well as other large scale festival events including Diwali in Trafalgar Square and the Mayor’s Thames Festival.

Join him to learn about his methods in this hands on creative workshop.

Brixton Revival 3D sculptural art workshop, facilated by Carl Gabriel is a part of UNDER/EXPOSED, a design series hosted by Squire and Partners in their new Brixton office, The Department Store.
