Over 3 separate days make a set of plates and bowls for 2 people.
If you care about food, care about what goes on your table and like things in your home that reflect your individual approach to life, this is an opportunity to make your own unique tableware from scratch. Make it for yourself or as a special gift for someone. A birthday, wedding or anniversary present with a personal touch.
Suitable for complete beginners as well as those with experience, this is a two person workshop so you will be able to work at your own tempo and not worry about competing for equipment or attention.
Over 2 days you will choose your clay from a selection of different clays, roll it out and form plates and bowls using a selection of moulds. When completely dry your pieces will be bisqued (fired to firm).
After a few days you will return for your third visit to decorate/ add further decoration and glaze your items. They will then be fully fired and ready for you to return and collect, or your items can be posted to you.
The emphasis will be on simple decoration to make relaxed, wabi sabi style, contemporary tableware with your own unique touch. Decoration can simply be a splash of colour, using printing stamps to press into the clay or a simple glaze to complement the clay you have chosen. Plenty of images and made pieces will be available for you to take inspiration from and you are encouraged to come with inspirations of your own.
Other dates are available to suit you by arrangement.
What's included in the price?
The workshop includes clay and the use of tools and moulds. You will also have a selection of glazes and decorating tools to choose from. Your pieces will be fired twice for you which is usually enough. Extra firings, e.g. for lustres, transfers will be charged for.
Tea, Coffee and snacks are be provided but lunch is not included. The village centre is a short distance away or you can bring lunch with you and if it's a nice day we can lunch outside.
