Welcome to Blackbird Arts - workshops coming up:

Why not have a look at the Archive to see what we do.


Clay Tile Making - 15/6/19 - Wilderness Wood

with Martin Brockman & Adele Scantlebury

This workshop starts with decorating clay beads, these can go straight into the paper kiln which Martin will be firing throughout the day.

Pre-made tiles will be provided for decorating with clay slip and oxides, using brushes, sticks and stencils.  You can design and make simple encaustic tiles and even have a go at traditional tile making.

And last, but not least, we should be able to unpack the paper kiln to discover the treasures within!

Suitable for adults, competent teenagers and family groups.


Mosaic - 22/6/19 - Isfield Village Hall
with Hannah Griffiths
Local Mosaic Artist Hannah Griffiths will guide you through a small project suitable for a day long workshop, but also show you how to develop it further at home.
A range of materials will be provided, but students may wish to use their own collected tiles, broken crockery or treasured objects for particular personal projects.
Suitable for adults and competent teenagers.
