Welcome to the world of Dominic Wilcox’s ingenious imagination where stained glass cars, GPS shoes and an art exhibition for dogs are perfectly normal. This is a talk to help inspire your creative thinking and to break through creative blocks. Dominic will take us on a whirlwind creative journey showing his playful and thought provoking objects and drawings.
He’ll also speak about his organisation Little Inventors that challenges children to think up and draw their invention ideas, then asks expert makers to bring to life the most interesting or brilliantly bonkers ideas for inspiring exhibitions.
Sunderland born Dominic Wilcox works across the worlds of art, design, craft and technology to create innovative, thought-provoking objects and ideas that inspire, surprise and delight. His diverse work includes miniature sculptures on watches, golden skimming stones and a stained glass car of the future recently shown at London’s Science Museum. He is also on a mission to inspire children to become the creative thinkers and inventors of the future with his Little Inventors organisation that turns children’s ideas into reality. Designer Thomas Heatherwick described Dominic's work as ‘serious challenges to the real world to keep looking at itself with innocent eyes, wondering what else is possible’.
