Bird, Fish or somewhere in between – workshop

28 October 2023 12:00-16:00

Among hundreds of sculptures, animals play hide and seek as part of the works of art. To find them, look high as for flying birds, low as for swimming fish and everywhere in between.

When the sculptor Carl Eldh (1873-1954) worked in the studio during the first half of the 20th century, Stockholm was different in many ways. Horses, transporting goods and people, were for a long time more common than motor vehicles on the city streets. In the Bellevue Park area surrounding the studio there were, then as well as now, wild animals as hares, birds and squirrels. You can easily imagine they were a source of inspiration for some of the works by Carl Eldh. Can you find any of the mentioned animals among the sculptures? You can also look for more exotic animals such as lions and hippos.

Borrow a picture overview for clues about what animals could be found. When finished looking for animals you are welcome to the workshop. With guidance you will sculpt your own animal in clay. The clay work can be painted and decorated before it accompany you home.

A warm welcome to all creative-loving 6–11-year-olds in the company of an adult.
