Ceramics: press moulded dishes & surface decoration

This short taster class is aimed at complete beginners, or those who would like to develop their skills further with the clay surface. It will focus on using ceramic moulds to create a set of unique handmade and decorated dishes, and will be run by Fiona. 

Fiona will show you some simple techniques for applying coloured slips, and how to use a variety of tools for markmaking. Other decoration techniques will include stencilling and monoprinting with slips and ceramic ink, creating highly textured slabs and building up patterns. 

Limited class sizes (five places only in this class), so lots of hands on support. Your work will be fired and glazed ready to collect a few weeks later. You’ll be notified by email and will then have a month to collect your pieces. 

£45 per person, inclusive of booking fee, materials,preparation, glazing and firings.
