Sarah Evelyn Marsh
The Sensory Toolkit 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.
Sarah is currently working with The Mosaic Rooms and The Whitworth, to create bespoke and unique 'sensory toolkits' for both galleries and their varyingly different spaces and needs.
The Whitworth's toolkit is called NEST
The Mosiac Rooms toolkit is called SOW (sensing our way)
