Venue: York Art Gallery

Create wacky and wonderful textured creations using air drying clay and combinations of everyday materials in this family friendly workshop inspired by Gillian Lowndes.

She called herself a “materials-driven artist” and she experimented with lots of new techniques and ways of working with clay, often including other types of materials and ‘found’ objects in her work. Why not come along and be inspired!

Timings are 11am – 1pm and 2pm – 4pm

Free family friendly drop in work shop. All material included. Gallery admission applies.
