Here’s an opportunity to work with medieval ceramics artist, Karen Slade from renowned Company of Artisans.

Karen has worked all over the country including Alnwick Castle and had work commissioned for television from the BBC’s Tudor Monastery Farm to Walt Disney’s film Maleficent.

In this workshop you’ll make a Green Man model in clay, working with natural resources and beautiful images for inspiration.

The Green Man is a mysterious image seen in historic medieval churches and cathedrals across Britain and Europe. With a face partially hidden and interwoven with leaves and tendrils, some think it represents new life and the turning of the year.
