A session for you and a child aged 7+ where you will both create your own character in clay.

Come along with an idea and some images of what you want to create. Your portrait may be a story book character, a family member, a famous or historical person or anything else that takes your fancy! Using a combination of pinch pot and sculpting techniques we will create a head. Once the basic shape is made from pinch pots we will discuss features and simple techniques to sculpt them.After this we will apply hair, jewellery, headdresses, using a variety of techniques including press moulds and sculpting techniques.

Suitable for all abilities as step by step instruction given so the project is easily achievable at each person’s individual level!

The price includes entrance for one adult and one child (aged 7+), all children must be accompanied by an adult (ratio of one adult to one child).
