Autumn Classes & Workshops.

Back for another term at Curious with classes and workshops. New for this term I’m running 3 workshops exploring the world of paper clay as well as my popular 5 week pottery classes.

Vessel

Paper Clay Creations.

Sat 23rd September

10am – 4pm

Come and find out about the world of paper clay. A material made of clay and paper cellulose fibres which transforms the art of ceramic handbuilding. It allows more freedom and expression because the rules of ceramics can be altered. It’s so easy to use that it frees the mind and allows the imagination to take over. The resulting work is much more likely to survive the process of drying out and the hazards of the kiln.

£70

Paper Clay Decorating.

Sat 14th October

10am – 4pm

Working with slips, oxides, glazes or watercolour and acrylic paint we will explore the world of decorating the paper forms we made in the first workshop (or be given a piece of work to work with).

£70

Christmas Decorations with Paper Clay.

Sat 18th November

10am – 4pm

A workshop where we can take time out for a day of relaxed creativity. Making decorations for the xmas tree, baubles candle sticks and porcelain T-Lights. Work will be fired in time for collecting before xmas.

£70

Bring a packed lunch or there are some lovely cafes nearby.  Tea coffee and cake (theres always cake) provided. Tuition, materials, tools and firing included in the cost.
