Animal Crackers – sculptures in the park

Join artists Clare Iles and Tom Armstrong and create your own sculptures out in Wivenhoe Park.

Using everyday materials, make the animals that feature in John Constable’s 1816 painting of Wivenhoe Park, including his swans, birds and cows. But why stop there? Let’s take this further and invent a few of our own!

With the guidance and support of artists Clare and Tom, you'll be surprised at how easy - and how much fun it is - to go animal crackers!

Admission Free - all welcome. There's no need to book, just drop by.

Arrive at Art Exchange and our team will show you where to find us in the park.
