Trace out the connections in our mind and help us to create a beautiful neural network.

This workshop involves two creative activities:

Tracing the Mind: Explore the beautiful organic forms and structures of neurons inspired by early research into the brain by Neuroscientist Ramon y Cajal. Using simple tools and basic watercolour techniques you will be guided to play and discover materials to make beautiful artworks that spread, grow and connect. 

Constructing a Collective Mind: Make giant cells and neurons out of willow and coloured tissue. These will form the basis of a beautiful translucent network of cells that will grow and develop into a free-standing 3D network.
