Dinosaur Live Build

Oct
05

 

 
This year we will be making a one-off, first time ever event in UK.
 
We will build a Dinosaur at MShed on a Live, fully open to the public event.
 
 This will be the culmination of 4 years of our very successful Bristol Dinosaur Project, and we would like to invite everyone to come and visit us.
 
 The event will start on the 1st of October and will run Tuesday to Sunday* until the end of November.
 
During the Live Build there will be a series of free, open to the public, satellite events taking place in MShed and University of Bristol - stay tuned for more information.
 
 
 *Due to the event´s extraordinary nature there might be some days when the build will only take place during the morning or afternoon - this has to do with the artist taking some time to reflect on the sculpture and/or due to the fact that anatomical research is ongoing while the model is being built. We will try to pass this information with as much notice as possible - stay tuned.
