A Taste of Art: Green Man Ceramic Plaques

Rural Arts Thirsk
Wednesday 6th February

Within this workshop you will explore sculptural techniques in clay to form a decorative green man plaque.

The Green Man is often related to natural vegetative deities and is primarily interpreted as a symbol of rebirth, representing the cycle of growth each spring.

You will explore various ceramic techniques including slab rolling, impression making and joining together using slip. Glazing and finishing techniques will be demonstrated to make your green man come alive with colour.

This workshop is suitable for all abilities, including those with no ceramics experience.

All materials will be provided.

Please note: Your piece will be fired in our kiln and will be ready for collection up to 2 weeks after your workshop. Please ensure that you give us your correct contact details so we are able to email you when your work is ready for collection.ead


Please note: physical tickets will not be issued, please use your email order confirmation as proof of purchase

'Taste of Art' workshops are creative sessions that are friendly, informal and good fun and aim to provide an introduction to a technique or art form. Lasting an hour and a half they are run by qualified tutors and artists and aim to give you an insight into a craft and inspire you to do more.

You don't have to be a creative person to take part as the sessions are aimed at all levels and the focus is on experimentation. Most of our sessions use materials and equipment that are accessible and low cost and we always try to provide ceramic activities that utilise our kiln.

'Taste Of Art' sessions will provide you with an opportunity to make new friends and meet up with other budding creatives.

'Taste of Art' sessions run during the school term and a detailed programme is released on this website.

Please bring an apron.
