Family Art Workshop: Make Your Mark

Family Art Workshop: Make Your Mark


Make Your Mark is an opportunity to have fun making marks and impressions, building and playing with colour using non-edible dough!

In this workshop you will learn one of three important elements that makes up creative play: mark making. You will make marks in soft dough using different tools constructed at the beginning of the day. These tools will be made from found objects that are linked to our current exhibition such as twigs, feathers, leaves, pinecones and pieces of bark that have been brought in by the artist running the workshop. The artist will teach you about the different tools and how they can be used to make various impressions.

As not everything needs to last, you can either take a picture of your work or simply start again, turning it into something else.

You will play with your dough building, layering and mark making on a base of coloured paper.

There will be a mixture of different coloured dough to use throughout the workshop. Choose your preferred colour of dough to work with or grab loads of colours to mix together and create a mash of different shades!

Let's break some rules! Get ready to make marks, layer, mix and build.

This workshop is suitable for all ages. It's emphasis is on making marks and seeing what you can do!
