Sculpt a human, animal or mythical head in clay…

Get hands-on during this one day workshop. Sculpt your own ceramic head using crank clay. Learn how to mould, form and carve your head and choose from human, animal or mythical heads as your inspiration. Collect you head once it is fired and learn about different finishing techniques you can apply.

Book onto one day to make a smaller head, or two days to make a larger head.

This workshop will be delivered by Kay Latto who has exhibited locally and nationally, including at the 250th Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2019 with her Grayson Perry sculpture.
