Memory of Clay

A sensorial exploration of the Conservatory

Barbican Conservatory

Join artist Paola Bascón to this sound and clay workshop inspired by the nature of the conservatory.

In this clay workshop, you're invited to immerse yourself in a sensorial exploration of the mineral and plant world. An audio guide will introduce you to the ancient origins of pottery, where we'll explore simple clay hand-building techniques. In collaboration with the Barbican Conservatory team, you will learn about the surroundings and take inspiration from different plants to create clay vessels. 

Reflecting on the interplay between the human, plant, and mineral worlds, it's a hands-on exploration!

Paola Bascón is a multidisciplinary artist working between London, Berlin and La Paz. Paola's artistic research deals with oral storytelling traditions, colonial history and understanding nature. Her practice engages in somatic and object-based sensorial explorations.
