Crafts Council Young People's Workshop @ The William Morris Gallery

Aged 16 – 25 and interested in craft and making?

We’d like to invite you to help plan and deliver our next Young People’s workshop, which will be part of our Hey Clay! festival in a few weeks’ time. This is a great opportunity to build your experience and gain lots of transferable skills. It’s fantastic for CV building, and if anyone is working towards Arts Award the workshop can be used for arts leadership/arts skill share units in your portfolio.

Hey Clay! is our nationwide free festival of ceramics. Studios, art centres and galleries all open their doors for the weekend to run free, hands on clay workshops for the public throughout the UK. The festival runs from the 23rd to the 25th of March, and is part of the Get Creative festival.
