Ewelina Bartkowska

Clay Workshops

Alderman Jones's House, 322 Parsloes Avenue

Monday 5 July to Sunday 11 July

Artist Ewelina Bartkowska has begun an artistic residency at Alderman Jones's house on Parsloes Avenue. She is organising a series of clay workshops where local communities are invited to make clay objects that she will later incorporate in the making of a fire sculpture placed in the garden of Alderman Jones's house.

The workshops will be a relaxed environment consisting of lessons in working with clay from the artist, open discussion about living in Becontree and the history of the area, and creating objects that reflect these experiences.

The workshops will run between Monday 5 July - Sunday 11 July between 10am-6pm at Alderman Jones's house (see full address below). If you wish to participate in the workshops please email Ewelina - space.ewelina@gmail.com
