Creative Clay Workshop Foliage Creature

Be inspired by nature, in nature at Careys Secret Garden

During this wonderful workshop, under expert tuition, you will be inspired by your natural surroundings in the stunning walled garden at Careys to make a Foliage Creature in clay.
Think about the stories of the Holly and Oak Kings, or the green man. What kind of foliage creature would you make? Has he got snails and ladybirds crawling over or flowers growing up him? A leaf beard? 
These will have a green wash added to enhance the textures.
Your piece will be taken away to be kiln-fired and approx. two weeks later you can come back to the garden to collect your items and visit the garden again.

Your ticket includes admission to Careys Secret Garden on the day of the workshop.
