Date & Time Sunday 6th October
10.00am - 1.00pm
Tutor  Carol Jacobs

Young people can explore markmaking on clay slabs creating relief tiles and platters to take home. We will impress and carve into different printing blocks using clay, plaster, card, lino and found materials and objects to create a variety of textured surfaces. Relaxed taster session with lots of sensory stimulation and opportunity to experiment. A great course to encourage creativity and build confidence to make your own mark, and a great way for older children to build up portfolio work.

Please note, there will be an additional fee if you wish the tutor to glaze and fire your work following the workshop.
