Art Oaisis: Spider Sculpture Launch

Tuesday, 30 April 2019

Art Oaisis are launching there Public Sculture.   Newtown College Art and Design course students – worked the Art Oasis staff to learn about amenity space management and how art can enhance people’s understanding of the environment and foster a healthier respect towards it. Each student designed and presented a nature inspired sculpture which could be placed in a public space. The students chose one design to be taken forward and an artist who would work with them to manufacture. They chose local metal artist and blacksmith Spike Blackhurst to design and build the chosen spider sculpture. The students enjoyed an inspirational ‘hands on’ ‘taster day at Spike’s blacksmith workshop, learning the tricks of her trade. The spider sculpture has been galvanized and will be installed this Autumn in a prominent position alongside the River Severn in Newtown in partnership with Newtown Town Council and ‘Open Newtown.
