Taster slip-casting sessions!
Want to try your hand at slip-casting but can’t commit to a full course?
You can pick any TWO sessions to join in on from either the Wednesday morning course or the Thursday evening course! Or a mixture even! It’s totally flexible.
If you really liked it and wanted to stay for the whole course, or even just another session, then that is an option also priced at £30 per session.
The course is super fun, hands-on, messy, productive and informative. You will be amazed at how quickly you can produce mugs, jugs, vases etc, to a very high quality of finish. We will be working with plaster moulds, porcelain slip, underglaze colours, glaze and ceramic decal transfers to create beautiful, functional pieces. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and intermediates alike. You will be able to cast 2-3 pieces of your choice. Come and play!
I will bring along examples of finished pieces for you to see and to hopefully inspire you! You will receive constructive help and ideas throughout the workshops. All materials and firings are included in the course price so just bring yourself and loads of enthusiasm and creative flair! All tools and equipment will also be provided. Plus light refreshments, cake & biscuity treats to keep you fuelled!
