Please note that Access Space will open at 3pm next Thursday 28th Feb. We have a MEND*RS COST workshop in the morning and early afternoon.
Scott's residency is called F L I G H T F O R M. He will make a short presentation about his interest in boomerangs this Friday 15th Feb at 3pm. This will be an opportunity to see some of his current boomerang designs and learn a little of the basics of spinning flight.
Check out his website www.redfrogboomerangs.com
For his residency he will be researching the production of boomerangs and other products in Refab Space. These will include auto-rotating gyroscopic sailplanes and gliders. The designs, ideas and experience are derived and developed from Scott’s own small commercial enterprise and current experience as a boomerang designer maker.
Scott is also interested in philosophical objects and the exploration and understanding of three-dimensional form beyond or aside from the traditional perspectives of art and design
There will be an exhibition in Access Space foyer from March 8th.
We welcome back the fabulous Open Platform for a third time.
Performers so far at this random access performance are:
Richard Bolam, Robin Close, Martyn Eggleton, Stuart Faulkner & Susanne Palzer.

Puppet makers Emma Powell & Meg Buick created “Refab Cormorant”, an articulated cormorant puppet, during their time as Access Space artists in residence in December 2012. Read more at http://refabcormorant.wordpress.com
Brazilian artist and architect Gabriel Menotti used his 2012 “Urban Fabric” residency at Access Space to ask the question “Would you like to build another Sheffield?” He used Refabspace's rapid prototyping technologies to create a model of an imaginary Cultural Industries Quarter, as a means to foster critical dialogue.
We close at 7pm on Friday 21st Dec and re-open at 11am on Wednesday 2nd Jan 2013
Have a great festive season : )
Puppet makers Emma Powell and Meg Buick are our Refab Space artists in residence for December. They will be creating a new work, probably an animal of some kind, for exhibition in the Foyer in January 2013. We're really looking forward to the result…we have a suspicion it may be a sea bird!!
