ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Prepare to embark on an extraordinary journey into mesmerising mythical lands of Skandinavian/ Norse myth:
The Viking hall of Valhalla has 540 doors and are inspiration for a wonderous workshop about these seafaring people, who from the late 8th to the late 11th centuries raided, pirated, traded and settled throughout parts of Europe (and the Isle of Man was no exception!). Children will use pens, charcoals and clay to create a door worthy of Asgard.
Children will design and draw a series of doors based on Valhalla and pick their favourite to produce a model door or wall plate out of clay. Children will develop their drawing and design skills to generate ideas for their clay sculpture and use etching, stamping and mark making techniques to create the final ceramic artwork. Before participants collect the finished ceramic doors of Valhalla, the artworks will be dried, kiln fired and glazed with oxides before one final kiln firing.
*** Please take a look at the additional section for ceramic collection information!!!
Why Artmaking is soooo good for you!
Great for the soul art making is a fabulous way to engage the parts of the brain other activities don't reach!
As Einstein once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge”, (we know knowledge is fundamental too) it is the key to problem solving and helps boost kids' social, emotional, creative, physical, linguistic and cognitive development...... and if that wasn't enough, it's fun!!!
