Details

The Green Man is a mysterious image seen in historic medieval churches and cathedrals across Great 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.

Work in clay using natural resources and beautiful images for inspiration. Your creation will then be taken away, fired and returned being fully weatherproof and suitable for outdoors.

With medieval ceramics artist, Karen Slade.
