Save event

Jo Lathwood has developed a highly experimental sculpture and installation based practice. Driven by a curiosity of how things are fabricated, Lathwood uses a wide variety of materials to educate and reveal forgotten, or sometimes re-appropriated, techniques. Her alchemical practice varies from experiments with making her own bronze to developing a methodology to cast with lava.

Lathwood was born in Bristol, England in 1984. She studied at the University of Brighton where she acquired a First Class Degree in Fine Art Sculpture.

Today's events

Visiting artist talks

All visiting artist talks are open to all students/staff and the general public and are held on Tuesdays at 16:00 at the Jill Craigie Lecture Theatre, Roland Levinsky Building, University of Plymouth unless stated otherwise.

Fine art at the University of Plymouth offers a unique opportunity for students to follow their own path through a range of subject areas. We describe ourselves as ‘broad-based’ which means we are especially supportive of students who wish to work across or between areas, at the cutting edge of art practice.
