Ceramic button/tile/jewellery making class


About the Course

A fantastic opportunity to create a number of unique ceramic buttons or tiles or a piece of ceramic jewellery to your own design which you can use on your own special projects.

On the day you’ll learn the techniques for making your pieces from scratch, this includes clay preparation, cutting, texture and colour. The cost includes glazing and kiln firing by Margaret after the workshop. Your best pieces (around 20 buttons/9 tiles or pendants/brooches, depending on scale) will be available for collection either from her Roundhay studio, Fabrication in Leeds or York City Centre, or by post (small additional cost). Extra items can be included at additional cost.

No previous experience is necessary.

The workshop is run by Margaret Glackin who is an experienced ceramic designer-maker.
