Event description
Find out what rococo means, why sculpture and shells were important to the rococo era and have a go at making your own shell sculpture!

About this Event

In this free workshop, local sculptor Madeleine Staples will provide a range of ‘found objects’, as well as a large collection of shells, so that each participant can make their own sculpture! The workshop will consider why sculpture was important to the original design of the Garden and why shells are symbolic to the rococo era in a fun and interactive manner.

The workshops are free, made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, and will help all young visitors to re-discover the intriguing history behind the Garden and its unique design. They are suitable for children above the age of five.

The workshops form a part of Painswick Rococo Garden’s heritage project, “Celebrating Painswick Rococo Garden”, this summer. Made possible by the support of The National Lottery Heritage Fund, the project focuses on the history of the Garden - in particular, rococo art and sculpture.

The project will run from May until September 2019, enabling local young people and families to discover the meaning of the word Rococo and explore the history of rococo art and sculpture through a programme of creative workshops, talks and engaging activities.
