Details

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.

Come to Pontefract Castle and make a model in air drying clay with medieval ceramics artist Karen Slade, working with natural resources and beautiful images for inspiration.

Times 10am - 12pm or 2pm - 4pm.
