About the Course
'Clay as a Canvas'
Discover how to use underglaze colours on clay to create ceramic pictures or simple vessels in a creative taster session in the idyllic East Sussex setting of The Hub, near Bodiam Castle.
Ceramic artist Kate Schuricht will demonstrate how to use intermixable ceramic underglaze pigments on unfired clay and apply relief and texture to make effective ceramic collages. All work will be fired and returned to The Hub for collection.
Workshop would especially suit beginners and intermediate level as well as artists working in another medium looking to explore clay.

Ceramic workshops with Kate are something I always look forward to. She is so knowledgable about her craft that I feel I can ask any question about any aspect of ceramics in general and she will have an answer for me. Kate creates a very relaxed atmosphere in which to work with a great choice of materials to use as well as interesting tools to use for mark making. The main thing, though, that I totally appreciate is that she allows me to explore my ideas and experiment, which as an artist myself is so very important. If I need any help, Kate is always on hand with excellent guidance. The whole experience is thoroughly enjoyable.

Response from Kate Schuricht:Thanks, Karen, it's always a pleasure to teach you and it has been really exciting to see your ceramics develop. Looking forward to some more adventures in clay with you.......
I learnt so much about working with clay, using textures, and engobe paints and even some experimentation with porcelin clay. I am already looking forward to more workshops with Kate who is an inspiring tutor and helps you achieve the results you want whilst encouraging experimentation.
