Description

Inspired by the extraordinarily life-like sculptures by Ron Mueck, kids will get to sculpt their very own figures with clay, guided by an artist.

In this hands-on sculpting workshop, you'll explore Mueck's work in the Upper Gallery to see some of the characters he has created. How do you think he made such life-like sculptures?

You'll then get to invent your own character and bring it to life using clay and sculpting techniques. Who are they? What are they doing? What's their expression? You decide!

Make sure your kids are wearing old clothes as things will get messy!

The boring part for parents/guardians: you do not stay for this workshop. Why not enjoy a relaxing coffee at their CaféBar, explore the galleries or relax in their Common Room?
