Description

In the 17th century, some artists found inspiration by looking at parts of the human body such as ears and the internal organs – yuck! This unusual wax modelling workshop will show you how to make a sculpture, based on parts of the University of Birmingham’s medical collection, as well as our Dutch Grotesque Bird – which was inspired by the human ear! 30 minutes of storytelling included.

This session will also run the following day on Wednesday 3 August, 2 - 4pm.

£8 per child, per session. Booking essential.
