HandCrafting Fish Workshop

27 January @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Make your contribution to a large-scale community project by hand-crafting a fish in this workshop with Wendy Williams

Wirral artist Wendy Williams has been commissioned to make a thousand handcrafted three-dimensional fish for a unique community art installation coming to Chester Cathedral in May. Leading the project, is travelling around museums, galleries, churches and community venues where visitors can learn how to make the fish and contribute to the piece.

The artwork will celebrate the launch of the new vision for the Diocese and the culmination of a twelve month consultation called, ‘Casting the Net Wide’.

Recycled materials, such as old calendars, magazine covers, wallpaper samples and card food containers are just some of the materials being reused to make the fish.

Visitors to the workshop will learn how to make a fish and can then carry on making them at home and the artists will arrange to collect the finished work a few weeks after the workshop.

This workshop is suitable for adults only
