A new 'grotesque' adult art class will be launching at a venue in Penryn next week.

The Gargoyle Making Workshop will be located at the Fish Factory venue in Penryn and will be hosted by local artist Sam Bradbury.

The evening club which will run from 7pm until 9pm every other week will focus on designing, sculpting and painting 'grotesque' gargoyle faces

Gargoyles are a staple of gothic architecture and are most often found perched on rooftops in order to divert water away from the roof and sides of a building.

Organisers have said the classes will be a great opportunity for people to come and learn new skills, practice new and familiar art techniques in a fun and sociable atmosphere.

All materials and refreshments are provided and all abilities are welcome.

The first session on January 24 will focus on designing and creating the gargoyle faces out of air drying clay.

Then in the second session, which will be held on the February 7, participants will get the chance to paint their creations as well as create a fimo gargoyle badge or magnet.

Spaces are limited and sessions cost £15 each.
