About the Course

Make a ceramic sculpture of your choice inspired by the Brutalist Architecture of the Barbican. Artist Matt Raw leads this unique, month–long course.

Let inspiration take hold as you learn about the processes and techniques, experimenting and playing with a number of different styles. Your finished pieces will be displayed in the Barbican Shop as part of London Crafts Week.

This brand new course kicks off with an Architecture Tour (included), where you can find inspiration in the many surfaces and textures of the Barbican Centre and estate. You'll spend the next three weeks developing your ideas across a collection of hand-rolled 'slabs' of clay; drying them, firing them and glazing them.

The course will take place in a pop-up workshop in the Barbican Shop, with one class in Matt's studio in Hoxton, East London, where you will glaze your pieces. The collection of finished pieces will be displayed in the Barbican Shop, with an opening on Wednesday 8 May, as part of London Craft Week.

Choose from Course A (Saturdays) or Course B (Sundays): Saturday mornings beginning on the 2nd March and Sunday mornings beginning on the 3rd March. Workshops taking place in the Barbican include a free hot drink from our café.
