Join the crew and artists for an afternoon of free creative drop-in activities aboard LV21 and in the adjacent St Andrew’s Arts Centre and at Bawley Bay. You’re welcome to just pop by or stay for the whole afternoon.
In this fun and engaging drop-in workshop you can explore mark making, roll printing and texturing with modelling clay. Led by experienced jeweller and silversmith Jennifer Kidd, you will get to try out lots of different mark making techniques using found objects and work with printmaking and jewellery tools. You can also paint your textured clay pieces and turn them into jewellery or small decorative wall pieces or magnets to take home.
Try your hand at creating texture on metal using beach stones, working outside at Bawley Bay on the shore of the River Thames with jeweller Jo McAllister. You will be using pewter, a soft, greyish-white metal that can be worked by hand. You will get to hammer a pewter disc to create your own unique texture, smooth off the edges with sandpaper and burnish those edges to a sheen with a river stone. Before you know it, you will have a tactile pocket piece or pendant to take away with you.
