Block Building: Workshop
September 15 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
Meet the Artist! Alex Allan is a public artist working with The Stove Network, pop by and find out more about him and his work in this open, collaborative workshop taking place outdoors in Fountain Square, outside the Stove.
Join artist Alex Allan in creating a temporary public artwork in the heart of Dumfries. Working with everyday building materials, participants will be invited to discuss the role of public art in our community and using the immediate surroundings and personal experiences of Dumfries as inspiration, create a temporary piece of public sculpture which explores these themes.
This workshop is the first in a series of public activities towards the development of a permanent piece of public artwork to mark the restoration of Dumfries’ historic Sun Foundry-designed cast-iron fountain. Alex will be using the results and experiences drawn from these public engagements to inform the final proposal for the work.
This session is open to everyone, and will be on a drop-in basis – so no need to book ahead just pop by anytime between 11 and 3pm.
