Make your own ‘Wonderbeast’ with local ceramic sculptor Chris Turrell Watts.

‘Wonderbeasts’ are a series of ceramic pieces that are drawn from medieval illustration, folklore and Outsider art. He’s interested in the space between fact and legend, exploring notions of the wild magic of nature and our own world of order and familiarity. Storytelling is a key theme to these pieces, suggesting distinctive characters and individual narratives. Created from a mix of hand building and press moulding and using layers of coloured slips and oxides, these objects feel alive and purposeful.

*Chris will also be here on LightNight, Friday 15th May to talk about his work and demonstrate how he makes his fantastical Wonderbeasts. Tickets for the workshop are £65 for friends of bdc, or £70 full price, anyone who attends our free LightNight event can get the reduced price of £65. Places are limited to 12 for the workshop, so please call 0151 709 4014 to book, or email us on crafts@bluecoatdisplaycentre.com.
