Buttons, Bud Vases and Tea Lights

2nd November 2016 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

£75

Create gorgeous textures in Ceramics with Gwen Bainbridge. Gwen will start the day by introducing you to porcelain clay, a beautiful material to work with; you are able to make quite fine pots as a complete beginnner. You will learn how to roll the clay to a useable thickness, then roll lace patterns of your choice into the clay. Next you will construct a slab pot, which may be a vase, or tea light holder. These pots may then be further emblelished with clay buttons or lace, all of which Gwen will skillfully show you how to do. A coloured slip may be added at this stage to show up the texture in the lace patterns. Scraps of embelished clay may be made into buttons or jewellery.
