Jesmonite Plant Pot Workshop at Kirkstall Forge

X

Description

Create your own miniature plant pots with artist and maker Kim Searle using a variety of geometric and recycled moulds. Jesmonite was named material of the year 2017, have a go and see why! It's a versatile material that will create a different pot every time - you'll learn how to weigh it, mix it, add colours and textural effects to create a pot unique to you. Pots can be made with pale pastels or vibrant colours, block colours or fantastic marbled effects. You will get to try a type of Jesmonite that will set by the end of the session as well as another type that will set the next day and has a much more organic look. There will be a variety of plant cuttings that you can add to your new set pots!
