Biodiversity Play with Clay Workshop

🕓 45 mins - 1.5 hours 🪙 From €340 🏠 Client venue


Workshop Description

This workshop explores what biodiversity means through tactile learning. We start with a short introduction on biodiversity followed with a short walk in nature to find natural materials and then incorporate them to make our very own biodiversity inspired sculpture. We finish by discussing ways we can help biodiversity and admiring our sculptures. Learning Outcomes: • Explore biodiversity through sensory learning. • Learn to use clay and make your own biodiversity inspired sculpture. At our workshops, we offer a range of duration and delivery options to suit your needs, each option offers unique advantages. For instance, a 45-minute in-person workshop provides a solid foundation and allows time for shorter period of creativity. However, opting for a longer, 1.5-hour workshop enables deeper learning, more experimentation & mindfulness and allows us to accomplish more together. Choosing the extended option not only enriches your learning experience but also ensures we can delve into more advanced topics and incorporate more interactive activities, resulting in greater value. So, for a more comprehensive and in-depth session, we encourage you to consider the longer duration options. Prices: • €340 for a 45 mins In-person Workshop including materials • €360 for a 90 mins In-person Workshop including materials In-person capacity: We can facilitate a group of maximum of 30 participants per workshop but recommend smaller groups for increased interactivity and more one-on-one time.
