Cities of the Mind is a sculpture course for children aged 7+ and adults*** to come to create together.

In this workshop you are invited to slab build impossible buildings of the mind. Come to create a colony of tiny buildings exploring dreams and imagination, using the techniques of clay slab building and constructing.  The aim of this course is to explore the sculptural potential of the vessel.

The cost of this course includes material allowance of 3 kg per person, and at the end of the session you can either choose to take your sculpture home unfired, or you can opt for us to biscuit fire your work to make it permanent. Once you collect your piece biscuit fired you can choose to paint it at home using any paint, or you can return to glaze your piece in one of our glaze sessions.

Clay tutor Finn Bush is experienced in working both in education and the decorative arts practice. Ceramics has been Finn’s major means for expression right from earliest childhood attempts in his parents’ studio, and during his creative career he developed a direct ‘hands on’ attitude to the use of materials and expanded his knowledge mainly on a ‘trial and error’ basis. He studied painting at art school but he believes in the freedom of vision offered by the material knowledge. Through his teaching Finn seeks to bring character and a sense of freedom to the materials he uses.

Bring: apron, pencil, notebook. Please wear closed-toe shoes.

This course is intended for all ages. ***Children aged 6+ are welcome to come with their adults.
