Plate it up! - Adults Only

2-4pm, £12 per person
Book tickets here

After months of turbulence our brains are overflowing. Worry, grief, anger, hopes, dreams – let’s get it all out and plate it up!

Join North Yorkshire artist Anna Whitehouse to create your own personalised ceramic plate, inspired by our Grayson Perry exhibition.

Decorate with sgraffito, stencilling and printing techniques, using a North Yorkshire clay slip which Anna has dug and processed from her own garden. Plates will be glazed and fired in Anna’s studio to make them foodsafe and returned to the gallery for you to collect. Price includes all materials, firing and event booking fee.

Please note:

This session is for over 18s only.

To avoid disruptions and ensure that workshop participants have the best experience, please note that if you are more than 20 mins late for your workshop and haven’t let us know, unfortunately we may not be able to guarantee entry.

To open York Art Gallery safely we’re limiting visitor numbers and encouraging everyone to book in advance. If you would like to visit the galleries before or after you attend this event, you should book a timed ticket for general admission to the gallery here.
