This family activity requires a parent/guardian to attend with their child. Suitable for children aged 8-11 years.
This three-hour workshop celebrates modern craft by exploring a relatively new and intriguing material Jesmonite. Known for its use as an architectural building material, it has more recently been adopted by artisans to create jewellery, homewares and furniture. You will learn to work in three dimensions by extruding and multiplying geometric shapes to create multifaceted and curved form moulds. You will then experiment with the introduction of casting fillers, pigmentation, relief, terrazzo and finishing techniques.
