Children's May Half Term - Clay Animal Heads

Rural Arts Thirsk
Wednesday 29th May

Within this workshop, we will be inspired by artist and activist Ai Weiwei. The Zodiac project was a large public sculpture completed by Ai Weiwei where he recreated twelve bronze zodiac heads that once adorned the Zodiac Fountain in Yuan Ming Yuan, the Old Summer Palace, in Beijing

We will touch upon Ai Weiwei's work and study our own Zodiac Signs to then create our zodiac signs out of clay. 


Please provide your correct contact details whilst booking your workshop, as your clay creations will be fired in our kiln when completed. Please allow up to 3 weeks for your creations to be fired and glazed.

This workshop is suitable for Ages 6+

Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult, who can join in for free.
