DATES: Saturday 6th and 13th May
I will be running a tile making course at The Craft Barn in Hadfield in May. The course is split into two 2 hour sessions. The first part (Saturday 6th) will concentrate on the basics of rolling out tiles and some of the decorating techniques that can be used on soft clay such as slip trailing and stamping.
The second part (Saturday 13th) will see participants working with leather-hard clay and learning the basics of sgraffitto and relief decoration.
All the finished tiles will be taken back to my studio to be glazed and fired and will be available for collection approximately 4 to 5 weeks later.
To make sure all participants get the most from this course there is a maximum limit of 7 participants. The total cost for both sessions will be £40. This covers all materials and firing costs. Please be aware that full payment is required to guarantee your place on the course.
After graduating from the 3D Design course at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2005, I moved back to Wales to established a workshop on the family farm near Aberystwyth. I made wood-fired stoneware pots and made my own ash based glazes. In 2009 I relocated my practice to Glossop, a small town on the edge of the Peak District. Here, I set up a new workshop and started making earthenware tiles based on medieval designs. I still make pots and once a year I take a selection of pots down to Wales to fire in the wood-firing kiln.
What's included in the price?
All materials, equipment and tools will be provided, along with light refreshments and snacks. Plastic disposable aprons will also be provided, however please feel free to bring your own apron - and wear suitable clothing (clay can be very messy!).
