Sculpture workshop for young people - by artist Susie Olczak

Welcome to our first virtual workshop for young people. This short, 25-minute video will guide you through a few ideas and techniques to make your own art work at home during this time of 'stay home, stay safe'.

Guest artist Susie Olczak is a sculptor and recent graduate from the Royal College of Art. Susie has been a freelance artist with us at the Fitzwilliam Museum for about seven years and we’re sure you’ll recognise her!

You can read more about Susie or see her artwork on her website
