The School of Curiosity Summer School artist in residence this year will be Cornovii Edwards. He is the renowned sculptor behind many famous artworks and monuments, including the Frederick Douglass statue presented to Barack Obama, the Muhammed Ali statue and the one featured in our picture entitled All Together Now, featuring German and British Officers marking the Christmas Truce of World War Two.
According to Cornovii, great statues have to be embedded with seven different layers of meaning, so even before you touch any clay you have to build and deeply empathise with the story. His stories are just as spectacular as his artworks.
We will be doing some hands-on work with Cornovii using our pottery and kiln, woodworking shop and maybe a bit of stonework, The purpose? So that we can create a seven layered story of our own lives.
Don’t worry aprons will be provided. All you have to do is to book your place for the summer school on 28th, 29th and 30th May which you can do here http://bit.ly/1C3R1mu
