Join ceramic artist, Louise Waller, in transforming an unfinished artwork. Participants will learn how to create clay flowers and leaves to transform a plain column into a three-dimensional living structure. The finished product will form part of one of the ‘New Perspectives’ exhibitions in the VG&M which sees award-winning ceramicist, Phoebe Cummings, re-imagine a former women’s common room.

Former artist-in-residence at the V&A and the inaugural Women’s Hour Craft Prize winner, Phoebe Cummings “encompasses performance art and studio ceramics” (Rosy Greenlees, Executive Director, Crafts Council). Her raw clay temporary sculptures celebrate the passing of time and gradually transform and disintegrate challenging our expectations of what art is.
