Learn hand-building techniques to create your own air-dried clay sculpture inspired by Katie Horsman’s Sleck Cow and other ceramics from The Argyll Collection.

This workshop will take place in our Workshop space on Wednesday, 24 April, from 11.00am to 1.00pm This class is free to attend, and all resources are supplied! If you would like to bring any extras (flowers, leaves, fabrics) to create texture and pattern in your form, feel free.

Finished pieces will be left to dry and painted using acrylic paint. After this, a ‘varnish’ will be applied to make them ‘waterproof,’ and you will be able to take them home. Please note that the finished pieces will not be safe for food/drink use.

Booking is required – spaces are limited to 8 people 

Suitable for 16+
