Putney based artist Sophie Marsham, will be exhibiting 15 beautiful sculptures at Sprout Arts gallery in Furzedown from 14 to 17 May during the Wandsworth Arts Fringe Festival. Sophie creates distinctive art from discarded utilitarian objects.

Individuals, families and other groups may drop-in to any session. This is a great opportunity for people from all walks of life to enjoy a group process of creation and self-expression. Work made may be selected by the curator to become part of the Move collection. Some workshop participants may also be invited to enter an aspiring artist's programme as a solo artist, which offers potential to be part of future exhibits.
Sophie will guide participants to create a sculpture inspired by performance and movement themes such as music, dance and theatre, reflecting the diversity of the local area. She has run a number of Move art workshops in the past, hosted by south west London charities, and is often particularly delighted by the talent of the very youngest.
All sessions are free, with a suggested donation to Sprout Arts gratefully received. There is a limit of 20 participants per session and all young and vulnerable people must be supervised by a responsible adult or guardian at all times. Please bring something to protect hands and clothes.
See Move art: Work by other Move artists of varying ages and experience will also be exhibited, and all art shown will be available to purchase.
New work for the Move collection is made on an ongoing basis by all ages at collaborative workshops run by professional artists. Work by lead workshop artists is also included, as is work by aspiring solo artists who join a programme to receive guidance from the curator and professional artists in tailored workshops and studio visits as they continue to reflect on themes of movement and performance.
