Kreaturi

Children’s participatory clay project

2017

In 2017 through the Kreaturi project, I deveoloped together with Umberto Buttigieg, Andrea Pullicino and Joyce Camilleri a series of clay workshops as part o f the Gabriel Caruana Foundation artistic programme for The Mill – Art, Culture and Crafts Centre, Birkirkara. These workshops provided a space for children to unleash their creative potential. The workshops focused on ceramic hand-building techniques with the aim of creating unique sculptures based on the kids’ individual expression and experiences. During the workshops, children were introduced to modern art in Malta, the main modern artists and Gabriel Caruana’s artistic legacy, with a focus on his biomorphic figures.

During the workshops we also made use of the square adjacent to The Mill. Through the use of music and shadow play the children created collaborative paintings in a public space.
