Heide at Home clay challenge

Using clay or play dough make a vessel of any shape or size in the style of one of the Heide collection works featured here.

Each week we will select the best creative submissions to post on our Instagram and at the end of the month a winner will be chosen.

The lucky winner will receive a one-year Heide membership and the catalogue from An Idea Needing to Be Made—an exhibition featured at Heide last year focusing on the vessel form.

Photograph your work and submit it to programs@heide.com.au. Please let us know if you are in the over 18 or under 18 category and which collection work inspired you.

Share your creations on instagram using the hashtag #heideathome.

View all the submissions here.

Happy sculpting!
