Relief Texture and Colour on Clay

This was my second workshop with Kate. Once again I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone wanting to try something new and creative in a friendly, relaxed environment. Kate organises everything for you, including the tidying up at the end. She was enthusiastic and encouraging, inspiring us all to experiment with texture and colour. Thank you Kate, I'm looking forward to seeing my finished pots!

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

Hello Kirsty. Thanks for your review. I am pleased that you enjoyed the workshop and the chance to experiment with a new technique. It was good to see you trying out the wax resist and the underglaze colour, with some lovely outcomes. Not long now before the pieces are ready! See you at 'Clay As A Canvas' in a few weeks.

Relaxed, informed, room for creative experiment, perfect for beginners like me.

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

Hi Julie.
Thanks for the feedback. You were very productive on Saturday - it was lovely to see you busily creating such lovely patterns and designs.
Some of your tiles are going into the kiln tonight and the rest at the end of the week. I am excited to see how they will come out!
