Family Activity: Decorating Cardboard Pots

Image shows a decorated cardboard pot with animal design motifs inspired by Ladi Kwali's designs on her ceramic works.

Join us to create your own pot out of cardboard, inspired by the pots in our exhibition Body Vessel Clay: Black Women, Ceramics & Contemporary Art. Experiment with different colours and patterns to paint and decorate your pot with your own designs.

This workshop will take place in our Education Room, which will be signed from the entrance. Please try to arrive at the Education Room within your booked timeslot (stated on your Eventbrite ticket). We recommend participants have a look at the exhibition before attending the workshop to see the inspiration for your own creation! A family trail will be available to guide you around the exhibition, which is open from 10:00am.


Please note that we will have COVID-19 safety measures in place during this session. Adults, and children over 11 years old, should wear a face covering when attending this session, unless exempt.
