Studio Pavilion at House for an Art Lover
This is a short introductory course, which is ideal for those that have some experience of working with clay. In the first week we will look at the properties and the possibilities this can create in making sculptural lighting pieces, benefiting from the translucency and delicate nature of working with this particular clay.
