What’s it all about?
In all cultures ceramic vases and bowls have always been used to commemorate, a wedding, an anniversary or any signaficant event. The Ancient Greeks depicted epic battles, Keats wrote an ode to a Urn and now an artist like Grayson Perry explores his past on the surface of a vase. To celebrate book lovers week we are inviting you to celebrate and create a story on a bowl, use images and type, quotes from your favourite novel or fragments of a poem….but on paper mache not porcelain.
Does paper mache stirs up memories of claggy, thick, mushy impossible stuff that goes mouldy? It just doesn’t have to be like that! Paper Mache is an amazing material to build all kinds of things, fruit bowls, funky light fittings, sculptures, mardi gras masks - just about anything! Come along and try out this wonderful technique and create something awesome. No prior experience necessary.
There’s a better way to construct paper bowls and this class will show you how. Make and decorate a bowl while you learn this super easy and quick mache technique.
What will we cover?
We will make a paper mache bowl decorated with something personal and meaningful to you.
You will learn a simple technique and there will be no claggy porridge!
We will give you tips on more projects you can continue with.
