A week with Sonny

I had Sonny Stuffins working with me recently as part of Greenhead College’s work experience programme. The week coincided with the setting up of our Sculpture Lounge fringe exhibition as part of Holmfirth Artweek so there was a lot of preparation including moving screens, plinths, artwork etc around and construction of the exhibition together with painting walls for a couple of days. After that we were workshop based and Sonny did his first bits of MIG welding and plasma cutting. He made a range of strange alien looking insects of his own as well as helping me with my work. The final day we spent de-constructing some of the old Sculpture Lounge studios. He’s been great to work with and proved to be a valuable member of the team.
