Daemon or Doppelganger

by Daemon or Doppelganger

Clay self-portrait workshops. Since 2001, these unusual participatory events have given millions of hours of fun, enjoyment, and relaxing creative activity to thousands of people of all ages and abilities.

The free-rolling workshops provide a meditative moment in a busy festival schedule, or a spontaneously creative opportunity to get your hands dirty and enjoy the tactile experience of moulding terracotta clay. The project creates a record of any event and gives everyone a chance to surprise themselves with what they can do! Clay is so easy to work with and so expressive, that everyone can enjoy making something to represent themselves.

The figures, faces and fantastic images made are exhibited during the event as inspiration to others, and as a memento of the day. They can be photographed and/or taken home after the event.

Daemon or Doppelganger workshops are popular with everyone, from local schools and community arts days throughout the UK, to large international weekend festivals, and can be tailored to a theme if required. They come with their own marquees and all necessary equipment, needing only vehicle access and a water supply nearby.
