Sat 19 Jan and Sat 2 Feb 2019, 11am–5pm at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, 21 Hawthornvale, Edinburgh EH6 4JT
Free. 15 places for 16–25 year olds.
A rare opportunity to work with clay in this free 2-day* workshop with artist Frances Priest. Taking place over two Saturdays, spaced with time for firing work in between, you will make individual works that come together as a whole. Inspired by Emma Hart’s exhibition of ceramic sculpture and installation at The Fruitmarket Gallery, you will make tiles, carving and incising them with pattern designs and decorating with maolicia, oxide wash and dipped glaze. You will work as a group to create a hanging collaborative sculpture, your own piece forming a fragment of a whole. The installation will be shown as part of the Fruitmarket’s Connecting Communities week from 12-17 February, with the opportunity to install it on Monday 11 February when a celebratory preview event will take place.
*Please note this is a 2-day workshop and participants must be free to attend on both days. The exhibition preview of work produced takes place on Tuesday 12 February, 6-8pm at The Fruitmarket Gallery.
