Join us for an online alternative to our regular behind the scenes studio visits at Spike Island. This is a chance to explore artists’ studios and view works-in-progress during these informal encounters. Each artist gives a brief introduction to their practice followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion via the online chat.

Rodney Harris works with natural materials in sculpture, education, printmaking and live art, often collaborating with different disciplines, addressing environmental and social issues.
