Future plans…

website blog

Being involved in ‘Flock Together’ has been an exciting and inspirational experience for both of us and though this part of the project has come to an end, it continues to provide a rich vein of resources for us to explore, informing our on-going collaboration and complementing our individual practices.  We are delighted that some of the existing work from the project, along with new collaborative works, will be shown at a solo exhibition at Black Swan Arts, Frome in Feb/March 2016, entitled ‘Sara Dudman and Debbie Locke – Collaborative Works’.  We have also created a new website where images of our work, exhibition details and latest news are available, so please follow our progress here at http://www.dudmanandlocke.com

Having enjoyed a great couple of weeks leading our workshops at Thelma Hulbert Gallery and also getting out and about doing outreach, we’re back in the studio and getting down to some serious blogging again.

The image above was a slow exposure shot of some glow-in-the-dark sheep created by students from Somerset School visiting the gallery and working with us for the day.

We had lots of fun combining some of our mechanical and hand-made workshop activities, projecting sheep video straight onto the sides of the rucksack drawing boxes.

Playing with tape, projectors, wool, Wikki Sticks and so much more!

We have been busy working with lots of different groups of children and young people at Thelma Hulbert Gallery, playing with tape, projectors, wool, Haribo sweets, and so much more.

05 Honiton Primary School

Children from Honiton Primary School popped in to join us for the afternoon last Tuesday. They were brilliantly engaged and fascinated by every aspect of the project. They all enjoyed role-playing a ‘rounding-up’ activity in the main gallery space. 9 children at a time took on the role of sheep while 3 became sheep dogs. They each ‘mapped’ their movements across the gallery floor using tape and wool as they followed the ‘farmer’ (either their teacher or Ellie our tireless helper) who pretended to be feeding them.

To accompany our exhibition, we have been leading workshops at Thelma Hulbert Gallery for local schools and art groups and this week, over several days, we were delighted to be joined by students from Littletown Primary, Honiton Primary and WESC Foundation for students with visual impairment. We wanted to give them a taster of our different approaches when producing our collaborative work, so they spent half their time with Sara and then half the time with me, before swapping round.

‘Flock Together’ is a collaborative project comprising artists Sara Dudman and Debbie Locke RWA working with a Blackdown Hills sheep farmer to capture the working relationship between a farmer, his sheep and his dogs.
