Explore the themes of Love and Loss in 'Facing the Modern: The Portrait in Vienna 1900' and learn casting techniques, with sculptor Sarah Tombs.

Using a small personal object that might represent a special memory or loved one, you will make a cast of the object then customise it to create your own meaningful memento.

Casting and sculpting materials will be provided. Participants should bring an object smaller than 15cm in all dimensions, with no moving parts. Please note the object will be immersed in liquids.

Participants will have the opportunity to visit Facing the Modern: The Portrait in Vienna 1900 during and after the workshop.
