Clay is a wonderful material to work with and has so many possibilities
If you are looking for something to inspire your family over half-term and have a go at something a bit different, then come along to a special workshop with ceramicist Zoë Cameron.
The sessions will kick-off with a walk through our current exhibition BANGER to explore the colourful and creative ways in which artist Emma Hart uses clay. We’ll then make our own sculptural tools to view through and record personal travel experiences. You’ll have the chance to take your creations home on the day, or send them off to be fired in a kiln (extra fee).
