Communal Sculpture & Slip Painting

Asset 2

Potter’s Den

Slip Painting
Have you ever painted with clay? Think along the lines of Jackson Pollock’s drip paintings combined with large sweeping brush strokes. It is messy and fun. We will have a large canvas pegged out on the grass, coloured slip (liquid clay – that we can use like paint), and alternative tools to paint with. 

We will be running free drop-in sessions each day alongside the communal sculpture.  Come along and we will give you all you need to create beautiful slip paintings. 

Communal Sculpture
Help us to build a Communal Sculpture out of clay.  It will be big and wild! Watch its sprawling growth throughout the festival as participants add their mark and their voices to this collaborative celebration of Wilderness Festival 2022 in clay.

Everyone is welcome to join in.  We will run free drop-in sessions every day where the sculpture will be open, and we will be on hand with bags of clay to assist you.
