'Clay as a Canvas' glaze decoration workshop in Tenterden, Kent (Course inactive)

In-person course
Katharine T - - #33582

A thoroughly enjoyable course, in a beautiful setting. Lots of equipment provided and Kate helped in giving inspiration to help with decoration of pottery. There was enough time to sit, relax, have a cup of tea and experiment with paints and techniques. I would definitely do this course again and found Kate to be an excellent teacher.

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

Thanks for your feedback and thoughts, Katharine. I am really pleased that you enjoyed the workshop and I was impressed by how productive you were! There are some of your lovely pieces being glazed in the studio as I write, and they will soon be ready to send back to you. I hope to see you again at another workshop.

What an inspiring day I had. Curiosity made me book this course and I wasn’t disappointed. Kate was a discreet yet very supportive coach. The group was keen and interactive. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and are waiting impatiently to see the fired result of my inspiration. Thank you, Kate.

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

Thanks, Barbara. It was great to see you working away so busily and to see you so engaged! The result was some fantastic pieces and I am looking forward to sharing the results with you soon, possibly at a follow up glazing session. I am just waiting to hear about dates.....

Brilliant day with Kate. Super friendly and an absolute expert, Kate took me through both specific skills and how to think about my work creatively. And all in a lovely setting and studio. Recommend very highly.

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

Thanks, Simon. It was great working with you to explore the glazing process. Wishing you all the best with your work and hope to see you again.

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

H Kirsty. Thanks for the kind and helpful feedback. It was good to see all the students experimenting with the underglaze colours onto leather hard clay and really pushing the materials to see what could be achieved. It is a really versatile technique and helps to get colour onto the pieces at an early stage, so I am glad that you enjoyed the process.

I really enjoyed the relief textureand colour on clay workshop.It was just the tonic needed at this time and I've already made some blank items ,ready to explore the technique further.The Cowshed was a stunning venue,but Kate's organisation,encouraging teaching style and attention to Covid safety detail made it a brilliant morning.Thank you ,I hope to return 😊

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

Hi Margaret

I am so pleased that you enjoyed the workshop. It's great that you have made some blank pieces so that you can continue experimenting with wax erosion.

Feel free to email or call me if you want any tips or advice.

Thanks for the lovely review and I hope to see you at another workshop soon.

Kate’s course was both relaxing and inspiring. She has a great way of teaching you without feeling like you need to remember. Everything feels very experiential and fluid.

I always learn so much from Kate because her experience of working with clay is very extensive but also because she really wants to see each person grow as an artist.

I can’t wait to see how my glazes have turned out once fired and hope to be able to attend another course very soon

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

Thanks for your feedback, Jo. It was so rewarding to see your designs and clay pieces develop over the course of just one day. It was a very productive session all round.

I will be glazing the pieces next week and returning them to you soon.

It would be great to see you at another workshop!

Kate made us very welcome in her charming studio. Despite my lack of experience - or just call me a beginner - Kate made me feel very comfortable. Everyone can work in his and her own pace, without any pressure but a lot of patience. There’s plenty of material to experience with and to succeed in the end. Since I live further away, Kate is so nice to post my work after she has fired it. What a nice day we had!

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

Thank you, Ute. I really enjoyed seeing your ideas develop as you explored the techniques over the course of the day. You really used the resources well and made some lovely pieces. They are being fired tonight and so will be sent on to you after glazing!

Perhaps I will see you back in Kent for another workshop one day?!?

It couldn't be more perfect! Thanks to Kate we spent a creative day in most charming setting - all COVID-save surrounded by inspiring materials.
We had the space to indulge in our little projects but also share ideas with our extremly nice participants. Thank you Kate!

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

I am so pleased that you enjoyed the workshop. The Cowshed setting is really special and adds some extra inspiration to the day. I really enjoy teaching there.

It was good to see you immersed in your making and so productive too. It is nice when students can share their results and learn from each other - always an added bonus!

What a fabulous way to spend the day! We had endless fun being creative with clay tiles in whatever shapes and sizes we chose. There were plenty of resources! We also used porcelain clay. Kate is then going to fire them so I can’t wait to see the finished pieces. It takes place in a magical part of the country too. So don’t hesitate in signing up!

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

It was such a lovely day and it was inspiring to see all the beautiful, graphic ideas you came up with. Your wood block type was a great addition to the resources, so thank you for sharing those with the students. The tiles are now being fired, so it won't be long before you can decide on how you want them glazed. I will send you some photos soon......

So nice to be able to attend in person. Kate took real care with preparation, hygiene, and COVID security. Felt totally safe. Learned lots of new techniques and was able to follow my own inspiration with very helpful suggestions and guidance. Would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to go way beyond dipping in a glaze bucket!

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

I am so glad that you enjoyed your day and learnt some new creative processes. I hope that you can use the techniques in your NVQ course and continue to develop your ideas. It was great seeing the 3D work you made. Happy making!

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.

Kate is inspiring and fun. She manages to share her knowledge without being intimidating. We were given a wide choice of materials and encouraged to experiment and play. It was a lovely way to spend a day !In the current Covid situation she was meticulous without being bossy we felt perfectly safe throughout.

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

Thank you, Jill. It was lovely seeing you so immersed in making some really beautiful pieces. I am glad you enjoyed your day and felt that you had discovered some new materials and techniques. I hope to see you again at another workshop!

Team building clay sessions

In-person course
Claire - - #23836

A big thank you to Kate for our team building session. We were looking for an creative activity which could cater for all abilities/ages as well as bond us as a team and Kate's session was exactly what we were looking for. The beautiful setting at The Hub to have lunch at beforehand was also very lovely and gave us a chance to relax and catch up before the activity started. I’ve only had good feedback from the team and we are looking forward to receiving our finished pieces!

Response from Kate Schuricht Ceramics:

Thanks, Claire, it was great working with you all and I am glad you enjoyed the Team Building session. It was a lot of fun! The pieces are all ready so I will drop them off soon.

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.
