What to expect on your Scale Making Experience
- Explore your creativity with this half day scale mosaicking workshop in the Art Bothy at the top of Stockingfield ceramic art park, with arguably the best sunset in the city.
- Start with an introduction to the ceramic art park, mosaics and a health and safety talk, before being shown some examples and guides for a simple design.
- You will be given a demo on how to smash, cut, shape, stick porcelain tiles onto fibre glass mesh to create your design.
- You will also make your own bespoke clay Beithir button as part of this creative experience. Two of the project artists will facilitate the workshop to guide your creativity and thinking to make your unique Beithir scale.
- No previous experience is required but by the end of the 3 hour workshop you will feel like a pro and know you have helped bring the colour Scotland’s biggest community artwork.
- Your scale will be permanently installed as part of Bella the Beithir’s decoration.
- Once installed on the Beithir at Stockingfield Ceramic Art Park you will be able to come and find your scale and personalised clay button after the install and show it to your friends and family and future generations.
