Weekend Large Garden Make



Make a ceramic garden focal piece workshop This workshop offers you a full weekend to make your own large, hand built piece to make the perfect focal piece for your garden. Two days of making to create a large piece for your garden, sculpture, bird bath, ceramic ‘totem’ stack or anything else you can imagine! Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th November 10am – 3pm both days (lunch is not provided) Using a strong hand building clay to hand build a large piece in sections that will join together after they have been fired and finished. My big front loading kiln gives you plenty of room to make big, especially when we build in sections. We can use slab building, coiling, a mixture of both or formers and moulds to create the base forms that we then manipulate and decorate to create your finished piece. There will be another half day session for glazing once everything has been bisque fired. This will be a few weeks later as large builds take longer to dry and I can’t fit so much in the kiln at once so it will take more firings to get everything ready for glazing. We’ll set this date at the workshop so please bring your diary with you on the Sunday. Although beginners can attend I would suggest it would be a good idea to have some clay making experience for this workshop. The workshop is followed by a 2 hour glazing workshop 2 or 3 weeks later.
