Tree stump planter workshop! 1 day sculpture workshop using Pal Tiya Premium

X

Description

Tree Stump planter Workshop! Choose to spend a day at Dallacre Farm set in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside, creating a unique Tree stump planter for your garden using a fantastic non-firing clay, Pal Tiya Premium. Customise your planter however you like, it could be a fairy house or have a Green man face, the possibilities are endless! We will provide you with plastic plant pots for the planter, but if you’d prefer a ceramic one then feel free to bring your own. We recommend 5/6” pot diameter. Weta workshop uses this product extensively to create large sculptures for private commissions and more. Ideal class for complete beginners, or more experienced sculptors that want to learn the techniques of this exciting new material. Learn how to sculpt the core in tin foil and other materials before applying the product. As our clay doesn't shrink during the curing process, there is scope to use it over items such as glass jars etc that just isn't possible with normal clay. Come to a day workshop to learn the techniques and explore the possibilities with this exciting new product, which is in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and now here! The product is simple and fun to use and you can take your piece home that same day! It will last outdoors in all weather as it has passed freeze/thaw testing and is incredibly strong! Because the clay needs a few days to harden, we will not be painting during the class. But you’re welcome to book in for another day and paint them with our help, or you can paint them at home. Class includes tutoring and all materials required. BYO Lunch (microwave available). Tea, Coffee, Water and Juice available! The beauty of Pal Tiya Premium is that what you make on the day can be taken home that same day as no kilns are necessary. ''Fabulous day at The Shire Workshops last Saturday making the 'everlasting pumpkins'. Thank you to Bob and Joe for making it such a memorable day and the endless cups of tea and chocolate biscuits! I can highly recommend a workshop with these talented tutors, you will not be disappointed.'' -Sheila ”Everything about this workshop was fantastic. The venue is perfect, the studio well set up and the tutors know their stuff, nothing was too much trouble, no question went unanswered. Very talented and multi-skilled artisans that are happy and able to share their knowledge.” ~Sally

We believe that all artistic expression is joyful, therapeutic and enriching. That it should be encouraged in all ages, and be a vital part of all our lives. We teach sculpture in several mediums. Also pot throwing & slab building. We have all the facilities to throw pots, glaze and fire ceramics. We offer classes and tutoring, but you can also come and use our workshop space and facilities to do your own thing if you don’t need our help. We are a creative hub!
