Welcome to our new video series, Fun Facts!

Many of us are interested in art but don’t know the history of the materials we use frequently. This series will uncover facts about a range of materials from clay to oil paints. We’ll be including little known facts about their history, properties and uses in our modern world.

A new video will be released each fortnight until the end of April. We would love your feedback or suggestions for future videos or series!

To kick off the Fun Facts series, we’re looking at 6 fun facts about clay. Clay has been used in art and technology for thousands of years but what do you really know about the ancient sculpting material?
