Carved Animals with Maria Howard

Carved Animals | Maria Howard
Saturday 04/03/23 between 14:00 – 16:00
£45 (£40 for members & under 16’s*)

Adapting the traditional Japanese Kurinuki method of carving tea bowls out of a single block of clay, this workshop will invite participants of all ages to sculpt an animal – real, mythical or imagined – using basic handbuilding tools.

Maria will guide you through the initial sketching and carving process and demonstrate different techniques for adding personality and embellishment. In the last stage of the workshop participants will paint their animals with coloured slips. The DCW team will add a clear glaze after the bisque firing to ensure your beast is ready for the harsh conditions of the wild.

The workshop is designed for all skill levels – beginners and children are more than welcome!

*under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.
