Open Theatre, who specialise in non-verbal, physical and inclusive theatre for young people with learning disabilities, led the session. They incorporated music, mime and movement into the workshop, nestled amongst the books in the children’s section. School staff and students alike embraced the opportunity to cheer up ‘sad clowns’ with colourful hats and beanbags. They were then invited to explore a range of objects provided by Intervention Architecture, who observed which textures and shapes were most appealing and could be incorporated into the final sculpture designs.
