THE final workshop of the Scour Project at Forge Mill is to be held on the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, July 23-24 giving residents one last chance to get hands on and involved in all the fun.

The event will be about sculpture and encouraging visitors to make clay artwork and then cast it into plaster.

The free workshop runs from 10am and 4pm on both days under the expert guidance of Keith Ashford and Elizabeth Turner who will help participants develop their ideas in 3D form and learn the plaster casting technique.

Elizabeth said: “Our workshops up to now have been really successful with participants of all ages getting very involved, learning new skills and thoroughly enjoying the activities.”

Keith said: “We hope this workshop will be just as successful as our previous ones and we’re planning to finish this aspect of the Scour Project with a bang. It should be great fun and will lead us nicely into our next ventures with the project.”

The event is a two-day course and booking is essential for both days.

The full ‘Scour: The Hidden Landscapes of Forge Mill’ exhibition is now in the process of moving to the old Bank shop in the Kingfisher Centre where there will be a pop up gallery from August 1 -13.

The project is being supported by a £15,000 investment from the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Additional funding is also being provided by Redditch Borough Council and Redditch School of Art Trust via Redditch Arts Council.
