Clay with Joanna Espiner (Block 1)

Craft skills workshops delivered as part of the Heart & Soul project

Clay was traditionally used in religious buildings to create elaborate patterns for floor tiles. In these 4 workshops led by ceramicist Joanna Espiner, you will create ceramic artworks inspired by the heritage and architecture of the Trinity Centre. You will develop your own designs through drawing, photography and taking clay impressions from parts of the building and the final pieces will be displayed in the building.

Block 1 Workshops are on Saturdays, 10am - 4pm on the following dates:

Saturday 10th Feb

Saturday 17th Feb

Saturday 24th Feb

Saturday 3rd March

Please note these are NOT drop-in or taster sessions. To learn the basics of each of the crafts on offer you will need to complete all of the sessions.

All workshops (clay, textiles, stained glass, woodcarving) will be delivered on the same days and times, so please select and commit to your preference in advance.

Reserve your place by following the ticket link or phoning 0117 935 1200.

Clay sessions have received additional funding from Bristol Ageing Better , so we particularly welcome participants over 55 yrs old to join us.

Block 2 Workshops will be delivered on Tuesdays, 11am-1pm from 3rd April to 22nd May. Contact us for more info or to register your interest
