Lacuna: Creative Play - Led by Leap then Look
Clore Learning Studio
The creative duo ‘Leap Then Look’ will host a session designed for educators to encourage creative play with different age groups, using simple materials and prompts.
To coincide with Leap Then Look’s creative play installation in the Clore Learning Studio, the artist duo will be hosting a session designed for educators to encourage creative play with different age groups, using simple materials and prompts.
This workshop will explore Leap Then Look’s practice and approach to working with other people. Participants will be invited to consider questions around collaboration, uncertainty and tactile experience and explore approaches which nurture excitement and create opportunities for surprise when working with other people. During the session we will work across sculpture, photography, and mark-making, and devise and try out participatory activities.
About Leap Then Look
Leap Then Look is a collaboration between artists Lucy Cran and Bill Leslie. They formed Leap Then Look to combine their extensive experiences as interdisciplinary artists working in settings including art galleries, schools, universities, and community groups.
They create art works, participatory projects, workshops and events for people of all ages and abilities. Key to their research-driven practice are forms of playfulness, inquisitiveness and experimentation, combining art forms including object making, performance, installation, film, and photography, enabling participants to engage in multiple processes, creating their own work.
They have worked for institutions including Tate, Royal Academy, Black Mountain College Museum and Art Center, Compton Verney, Photo Fringe, ACCA, and universities including Cambridge, Westminster, Bath Spa, Kingston School of Art and Harvard Education.
