Undertake a design challenge to create an architectural sculpture in this hands-on workshop for primary and secondary students to complement Yhonnie Scarce's Missile Park exhibition. Students will investigate the structural and aesthetic properties of cardboard and apply a variety of joining techniques to create a 3D sculpture (monument, structure or architectural model) inspired by the built environment.
This activity can be adapted to suit both primary and secondary students and is envisioned for education groups, bookings are essential.

This workshop accompanies Missile Park an exhibition at the Institute of Modern Art by Yhonnie Scarce.
Yhonnie Scarce is an artist known for sculptural installations which span architecturally-scaled public art projects to intimately-scaled assemblages replete with personal and cultural histories. Scarce is a master glass-blower, which she puts to the service of spectacular and spectral installations full of aesthetic, cultural, and political significance. Her work also engages the photographic archive and found objects to explore the impact and legacies of colonial and family histories and memory.
