During half term the Art Cabin held a clay workshop for children aged between 5 and 12 years. The young artists had to produce a room made from three clay tiles (one for the floor, the other two for adjoining walls).
Airdrying clay was used for this project. Tile templates cut from card helped the children to achieve same size squares for their floor and walls. Windows and doors had to be cut out of the tiles with clay tools. Fabric and textured wallpaper scraps were used to imprint the clay with decorative detail and of course furniture had to be sculptured and positioned.
The rooms produced were very impressive with lots of detail. When the sculptures are dry they can be painted and varnished.
