This ceramic workshop will enable you to develop skills in using a range of handbuilding techniques to explore your ideas and create your own projects in clay. Taking inspiration from some of the ideas and objects in the Fiona Foley’s Who are these strangers and where are they going? exhibition to translate these colours, lines, forms and stories into a three-dimensional artwork.
