Workshop Content and Dates

Workshop numbers will be limited to 6, so that there is plenty of time for 1:1 tuition.

Wheel Throwing, Weekly

You must have some prior experience. This is a mixed level group with Christine or Katie on-hand to provide 1:1 tuition or demonstrate new techniques.

Glazing Saturday January 2nd & 16th

Participants will have access to dipping glazes, painting glazes and hot & cold wax and Louise will demonstrate a range of techniques for glaze application. Materials will be charged at a discounted rate as a single payment by weight of bisque and then any glazes can be used. This is an opportunity to layer dipping glazes, use in combination with painting glazes and use layers with wax resist.

Plaster Casting, Saturday January 9th & 21st

You can use these sessions to cast moulds for slip-casting, pressed forms or stamps. Louise will talk participants through the process and provide the 'cottles' needed for making moulds, plaster will be charged at a discounted rate by weight (it's pretty cheap). If you have no prior experience of mould making you may want to attend two workshops, you can use the first workshop to make stamps and then  find or make master-forms for casting moulds during the second.
