Phoebe Cummings at Modern Clay

Pleased to have a workshop with Phoebe Cummings next month 11th November see below for link for tickets.

In this workshop you will work with artist Phoebe Cummings to explore the potential of sprig molding and hand building techniques. Two-dimensional designs will be used as a starting point to create simple press molds, from which you will construct and adapt into more elaborate three-dimensional forms. This workshop will consider relationships between historic design and contemporary sculpture.

This workshop is aimed at beginners and intermediate experience of clay.

Lunch will be provided with this workshop at nearby Dig Brew Co, River Street.
