We’re pleased to announce a set of workshops for young people aged 7 to 13, to coincide with the arrival of the Hulda Festival in Malta.  Here’s a quick round-up of the workshops:

Vibration Energies Workshop
Monday 5th July and Monday 12th July, Two sessions at 10.00hrs and 11.30.

This workshop will use the scientific concept of Pointillism (vibration energies, electromagnetic spectrum and howour eyes perceive colour and their effect on the brain and emotions). The participants will then proceed to creating an individual mosaic with the colours and theme provided. All works will be used for a final collective mosaic which will be put up on display.

Negative and Positive Space in Marine Structures
Saturday 10th July, 18.30hrs.

The concept of positive and negative space will be explained and students will be asked to choose a part of a marine structure and create the positive and negative space using materials provided. All works will be used for a final collective mosaic which will be put up on display.

Joseph Barbara – Renowned Artist & Sculpture
Metamorphosis – The Changing Shape of a Plastic Bottle
Thursday 8th July, Two sessions at 10.00hrs and 11.30.

The workshop will focus on the environment, plastic as a material and recycling.  Participants will be supplied with an empty plastic water bottle, and with the help of a pair of scissors, will be asked to change/modify its shape. The work will be modeled on the work that Mr.Barabara has excelled in – sculpture work derived from recycled materials.
