Carl Walters and Woodstock Ceramic Arts
Join us for a family-friendly tour and scavenger hunt of the exhibition Carl Walters and Woodstock Ceramic Arts. The tour will focus on his use of animal imagery and shadow boxes (cabinets). After the tour, we will use oven-bake clay to make our own animals, inspired by Carl Walters. We will make these into pendants to be worn as necklaces, bake them in the museum oven and, before stringing them, arrange them all in a shadow box of our own to make a unique story and photographs.
