‘Sculptunes’ is a series of interactive multi-sensory installations that are designed with and for early years children. Each piece invites the early years child to explore sound, colour, texture, visual dexterity and sound making through actions and movement. Each component is trialled and tested with early years children and early years educators. The design for each piece changes in response to the interaction and engagement of children, babies and their families.

I am enjoying inventing and developing new ‘Sculptune’ works in collaboration with early years children and interested musicians. I am currently engaged in an Artist In Residence with the children and staff of Pre-School 1 attending the Central Remedial Clinic School. Together we are exploring ideas for the design of a new 'Sculptunes' piece to enable children who are living with profound need to engage equally in self initiated and independent play.

'Sculptunes' is available to visit creches and other early years initiatives. Visits consist of 1 an hour long workshop that explores the different textures of sound, rhythm and world musical instruments using every pore of our bodies.

I would like to thank the National Concert Hall for their ongoing support in the development of 'Sculptunes'.
