Join Artist, Becki Clark for a mindful and creative day exploring clay and ceramics to celebrate the season. Becki will introduce the materials that will be used in the session and work through a range of activities and techniques to help you gain confidence with the materials from simple nature pressings to jewellery dish and pot making. In the afternoon Becki will also work through techniques for painting ceramics with folk art inspired patterns and designs and you’ll each paint a vase ready to take home and fill with seasonal flowers! The session is designed with complete beginners in mind, no previous creative experience is required just an interest in learning something new and embracing creative mindfulness. Becki will be on hand with lots of tips, tricks and you'll be able to take your clay home to carry on with your new creative skill. 

This is a one day course taking place on Tuesday 25th June, 10:00am - 4:00pm.
