Join us for this fun course in which you will hand build simple clay forms (mugs/dishes etc). You will then turn your drawing/ideas into designs and using a variety of surface design techniques you will decorate your pieces.

We will begin week one with a thorough explanation of the equipment required and demonstrations of the various hand building techniques and examples of surface techniques. The following three weeks will consist of decorating your pieces with a variety of surface design techniques.

Techniques will include:

Screen printing
Stamping
Paper resist
Carving
Texturing
Painting
Slip decorating
Wax resist
Layering
A range of books and items to provide inspiration will be on hand. Participants are encouraged to bring their own drawings, interesting objects and inspirational books for designs.

All materials and tools are provided. Please wear clothing you don't mind getting messy.

Please note that your final pieces will need to be fired after the workshop and can be collected from the studio or arranged to be posted for an additional cost once finished.

Sections of this course can be made into individual workshops and are great for groups such as hens parties, baby showers, birthdays, special occasions, team building activities, corporate events, bucks parties or Christmas parties. Fill out the form to enquire for your group.
