Explore….Ceramic Garden Sculpture | Sat 19 Mar | 11.15am-5.15pm | £65 (includes all materials and tea/coffee) | Tutor Chris Barnes | Studio 2

Explore Ceramic Garden Sculpture is a fun sculpture building workshop designed to quickly develop sculptural ideas. By the end of the day, you will have made your own ceramic sculpture for the garden or other specific site with the guidance of artist and maker Chris Barnes.

During the course you will be shown:

  • How to make a crank clay sculpture for the garden or other outdoor site.
  • Ways to think about how composition and form interact with the environment.
  • How to work with the limitations and strengths of the material.
  • How to make use of the textural qualities the material offers.

Suitable for any ability, all you need is an idea for a sculpture to make, though Chris can help you develop something for your particular space.

This is a practical making day. There will be a break of 30 minutes for lunch. Work will be fired to stoneware temperature making it suitable for garden display. It will be frost resistant but not guaranteed to be completely frost proof.

What do I need to bring with me?
Please bring an apron and/or wear old clean clothes. Bring a pen, notebook and your glasses, if you need them. Please bring a packed lunch.

Are there any additional costs?
No, all tools, equipment and clay are included. At the end of the session choose one piece to be fired and collected at a later date.
