Pop-Up Picture Playground at the Hepworth Wakefield

It was the last of the Creative Playground workshops today at the Hepworth Wakefield as The Rhubarb Triangle and Other Stories - a photography exhibition by Martin Parr also finished.

In our fab Pop-Up Picture Playground space, families were invited to consider ways to construct an image through collage, image composition and pop-up paper folding techniques. To compliment this more focused, small-scale work, participants could also playfully position themselves in the picture as they explored an intriguing array of objects and materials of mass consumption, to use as props and costumes to turn themselves into Parr-inspired characters in our pop-up photobooth. The space was set up to accommodate a number of curious interactions as children danced, dressed up, told stories, set up scenarios to act out, posed for photos, took photos, dressed their parents up, or simply lay on furry fabrics to relax. It was great to see everybody getting fully immersed and involved!

Creative Picture Playground: Pop-Up Posers

It's photoshoot time and we're drawing inspiration from the Parr-look, which is on-trend this season!
 

This week, I will be leading Creative Playground at the Hepworth Wakefield, sending budding young photographers, picture-makers and posers to see the Rhubarb Triangle and Other Stories: Photographs by Martin Parr  - a detailled exhibition of the work of Martin Parr through the decades from his black & white nostalgic scenes of rural, methodist communities in West Yorkshire to his glossy, colourful critiques of subjects such as leisure, tourism, money and work.

In the studio the set-up will be playful with the chance to make some humorous collaged, pop-up scenes. There will also be a range of colourful sensory props, objects and materials to transform ourselves into different pop-up playful characters.

Looking forward to striking a pose and keeping the #hepworthwakefield Instagram feed active this week! Also, check out my @filledelumiere Instagram page!
