Sold Out

Join Wakefield-based artist Jessica Kendall for a weekend introduction to creating household design objects with concrete.

After visiting the galleries to look at the finishes used in Hepworth’s sculptures and the building itself, you will experiment with a selection of mounlds and dyes to create a number of planters, vases, fruit bowls, door stops, coasters, candle holders or an ornamental pieces for the home.

The artist will introduce the popularity and properties of concrete and how to work with it safely, from mixing to casting and finishing.
