This is a unique hands-on creative experience to gift friends and family to contribute to an extraordinary community artwork.
What your giftee can expect on a Scale Making Experience (2 persons per scale)
- Participants will start with an introduction to the ceramic art park, mosaics and a health and safety talk, before being shown examples and guides for a simple design.
- Your giftee will be given a demo on how to smash, cut, shape, stick porcelain tiles onto fibre glass mesh to create your design.
- Participants will also make their own personalised clay Beithir button as part of this creative experience.
- Two of the project artists will facilitate the workshop to guide creativity and thinking to make a unique scale.
- No previous experience is required but by the end of the 3-hour workshop participants will feel like a pro and know they have helped bring the colour to our beautiful Beithir, Scotland’s biggest community artwork.
- The scale they make will be permanently installed as part of Bella the Beithir’s decoration.
- Once installed on the Beithir at Stockingfield Art Park they will be able to come and find their scale with their personalised clay button and show it to their friends and family and future generations.
