Sensing Our Way: A new commission to create a sensory language for The Mosaic Rooms

Sensing Our Way: A new commission for sensory-led family play by The Mosaic Rooms.

If today was a colour, what colour would it be?

The Mosaic Rooms has invited Sarah Marsh (@TheSensoryToolkit),to develop a new commission to create a bespoke ‘Sensory Toolkit’ for our building.

We invite families to work with Sarah to build a picture of the gallery’s own “sensory language”. As a collective, we will select a colour palette that we feel matches the gallery spaces, and we will enjoy different textures and smells that enhance our experience of being with one another at The Mosaic Rooms. Together we will create our own collection of multi-sensory objects; inspired by children, for all to enjoy!

Join a free Sensing Our Way workshop for families on Saturday 18th February.

About Sarah Marsh and The Sensory Toolkit

The ‘Sensory Toolkit’ by Sarah Marsh is a developing collection of objects, ideas and ‘spaces’. Initially inspired by engagements with autistic children and their parents, this body of work is now accessible for people of all ages and abilities to interact with. The collection contains handmade, fabric focussed objects that explore sensory themes such as; weight, scent and flexibility. The objects invite you to experience the space from different vantage points; encouraging the viewer to become a participant.

She has many years’ experience of working with international Art institutions and organisations that include; Tate galleries (L’pool), UCLAN, The Whitworth (MCR),The Royal Academy (Ldn), U-Jadowski contemporary gallery (Warsaw , PL), Galeria Labirynt (Lublin, PL), ?aznia Centre for Contemporary Arts (Gdansk, PL), Manchester Art Gallery, The British Council, Arts Council England, a-n: The Artsits Information Company, Access Art, The Wildlife Trust, Clore Duffield Foundation, Heritage Lottery Funding and city councils across the UK.
