NEW Woodland Workshops for Key stage 1 and Key stage 2 with Martin Brockman of Blackshed Gallery

Martin is a highly skilled and experienced visual artist. His work spans a range of media including works on paper, wood-block prints, ceramics, kilns and three dimensional works in wood. During his 30 year career Martin’s work has taken many forms including hand-made tile installations beside canals, prototyping outdoor firing techniques, using sculptural kilns and prints, woods and found materials reflecting local woodland landscapes. We are lucky enough for Martin to be offering the following workshops with Lucy’s Little forest School.
