I am Making Art

Artist Marie Toseland has been casting jelly to make her recent sculptures, and in this tempting workshop she demonstrates how to make similarly edible sculptures using chocolate clay.

These artist-led workshops take place on the first Saturday of each month, inviting curious and creative minds of all ages and abilities to take part. Participants can try their hand at methods the artists themselves use and take inspiration from the exhibitions in the gallery.
