Manchester Craft and Design Centre has long been an oasis of calm and beautiful things amongst the busy bars of the Northern Quarter. Now, with the return of their workshops, you can have a go at building a beautiful object yourself, with MCDC resident and ceramicist Katherine Lees’ Ceramic Animal Sculpture Workshop.

end up with a sculpture you can be proud of

Over the course of two hours, Katherine will teach you the skills to hand build and decorate your own animal sculpture using tools, slips and underglazes. As well as learning some solid ceramics skills, there will be a lot of freedom to be artistically expressive. You can get hands on with the clay knowing that Katherine will be there to help you realise your ideas, so that you end up with a sculpture you can be proud of.

her vessels and wearable pieces have a distinctive personality

Katherine Lees is a multi-award winning ceramicist who has exhibited work throughout the UK. Her vessels and wearable pieces have a distinctive personality and often take inspiration from natural forms and animals. She is currently based in Studio 5 at Manchester Craft and Design Centre, however, the workshop will take place in the light and open Space 2.

There is no need for previous experience, as you can work at your own level. The workshop is suitable for all, even if you are approaching hand building with clay for the first time. All the materials and firing are included with the price and the finished pieces will be ready to collect from the workshop four to six weeks after. Discover how fun clay can be this September, while building your own ceramic animal sculpture.
