Get experimental with Cella Collective, we’ll be squeezing houses for sculptures, moulding materials and upscaling our new nooks.

Using bones and stones as miniature sculptures, design and build your own space to display, celebrate and frame the natural artworks. You’ll squeeze and mould clay, sand and gravel from our site into bricks, columns, walls, stairs and openings. How do they expose, reveal, raise, hide, lower, or shelter the little sculptures in their new home?

Test and play with scale and size, we’ll use photography to make these small models appear as big as Henry Moore’s larger-than-life sculptures.

Suitable for families with children aged 5+. This is an intergenerational workshop – we encourage creativity in all ages!

This workshop is part of our Inspiration, Sculpture and Our Natural world season.
