Paloma Varga Weisz was classically trained in woodcarving in Bavaria, and uses this ancient technique to create her most of her sculptures. Take inspiration from the exhibition, then learn to use specialist tools to create your own relief wood carving with artist Jason Turpin Thomson. Places at ‘carving stations’ are very limited, so we have created ‘carver’ tickets and ‘supervisor’ tickets, for parents or guardians who wish to accompany and assist a child or young person. BOOKING This free 2 1/2 hour workshop runs 9:30am - 12pm and again at 1 - 3:30pm. This event is suitable for families with children and young people aged 8+, however due to the nature of the workshop involving sharp tools we are unable to allow children under the age of 8 to attend. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Booking is required, as places are limited. Book your place via Eventbrite []
