Get hands-on with dry clay over the Easter holidays with artist Lucy Joyce. Coinciding with Beth Collar’s new terracotta sculptures for Dilston Grove, you will learn different clay processes and create tangible artworks to take home. Please come in old clothes as this workshop might be messy.

The morning sessions (10am-12pm) are designed for Under Fives, while the afternoon sessions (1-3pm) are for 6-11 yrs.

These workshops are free, drop-in and have a capacity of 12 children at any one time, please arrive on time to avoid disappointment. Though they are tailored to specific age groups, we will accommodate families with mixed ages and adapt the activities if required. Please note children must be accompanied by an adult.
