Make a Clay Green Man or Lady of the Woods sculpture

Course Description

Looking for something different to do during the summer holiday? Why not bring your parent, guardian, grandparent, older sibling or favourite adult to the Weald and Downland Living Museum for a fun creative workshop inspired by nature.

The workshop will begin with a short walk in the woods where you will have a chance to get up close to nature and find out about the ancient origins of the Green Man of the Woods. Then it’s back to classroom to learn how to bring clay to life by sculpting a face and making beautiful leaves by impressing foliage into the clay.

By the end of the workshop you will have a unique Green Man or Lady of the Woods to take home to air dry or you can leave it to be fired and collect at a later date.*

*Please note: this is subject to an additional fee to be paid to the tutor on the day.
