Join ceramicist Joshua Schoeman to make a pinch pot. You can use clay, plasticine or make up some salt dough with the recipe provided.
Rangoli is the art of drawing images and motifs on the floor and walls of one's home and are symbols of welcome and good luck. Be inspired by the celestial and natural themes in the decoration on the walls of Watts Chapel and make an artwork to hang on your door, wall or at your window.
A huge thank you to Meera Chauda for collaborating with us on this activity.

Experiment with making marks using everyday items. What patterns and effects can you make with a piece of string, a cardboard roll and an old toothbrush? Consuelo Riveros shares lots of techniques and ideas for what you can do with your creations.
Touch and sight are important to potters - we make forms by changing what our hands feel what our eyes see. So what if we try to make with clay without looking at what we are doing?
Marbled Gift Tags
Be inspired by the Victorians' love of marbling when it was used to decorate paper for writing and bookbinding. Join artist Honey Dearsley to create beautiful gift tags using a simple marbling technique.
