Sculpture Workshop
Join sculptor Alan Potter on a Monday afternoon, and create clay sculptures, that can then be used to develop stone carvings. In recent workshops, Alan has been teaching participants how to create 3D clay sculptures, then making moulds of them using silicone and a rubber resin, which can then be used to make Jesmonite casts.
Funk Up Yer Junk
We want you to bring along everything from empty crisp packets and plastic bottles to fashion into fabulous accessories, to old lamps and frames to upcycle to your own taste, with artists Jeanette Sultan and Amelia Rowe. We welcome participants to bring along their own lacklustre pieces of furniture and we will also have furniture that has kindly been donated, so you can still have a go, and take your piece home with you! Plastics such as carrier bags and crisp packets are hugely difficult for our local councils to recycle, so Amelia is going to use them to share skills with participants in how to make items such as jewellery, woven baskets and wallets.
Mosaic Madness
