'Raku and Sketching' A children's workshop with Hilary Kemp & Ann Biggs

Hilary will make a selection of pots and biscuit fire them before the workshop. You will learn about glazes, and apply them to a pot. They will then be fired in a gas kiln, and when red hot, moved into a sealed tin. The smoke and heat transforms the glaze, revealing amazing colours and patterns.

Whilst the firing is going on, Ann will help you find exciting leaves and flowers in the sculpture garden to sketch and colour. 

It will be messy - so wear old clothes!

10:00 - 4:00 £30 per person inc materials. 

Suitable for ages 10 - 17 years. Adults are also welcome to come and help for free.

'Glass Fusion with Inclusions' with Sarah Hunt

An exciting method of working with glass. The pieces are made by trapping metals: copper, aluminium, brass or silver in the form of foil, leaf or wire between two pieces of glass. Also frit, dichroic glass and other materials can be used. 

The artwork is fired to 820c so the glass slumps and fuses together. The results are an unpredictable alchemy which causes unique and exciting effects.

10:00 - 1:00 £40 per person inc materials. 

Suitable for ages 10+ years
