2023 Weekend Ceramic Course Schedule
Ceramic Form & Surface: Inspired by Nature
Course fees include materials (clay & decorating slips), use of studio equipment & pottery tools, ceramic glazes & firing of work [fair usage applies].
Suitable for all levels – beginners, improvers & advanced – small class size.
→ Course Details – taking your inspiration from the natural world you are asked in advance to explore an aspect of the plant or animal kingdom or indeed the Earth itself, landscape etc.
~ The key is to find an element of nature that you find fascinating, that inspires you. Before the workshop I encourage you study different aspects of your inspiration.
~ What do you like about it? Is it the texture, the colour, the form, the profile?
~ What does it represents for you? The more familiar you are with your inspiration the better. This will be very powerful when we translate it into clay.
This is a practical workshop where you will have a chance to build and decorate a form inspired by an aspect of nature you are passionate about. Going forward you will be able to apply your new skills to future projects.
♥ As always, at Ceramic Forms we will look at glaze application and the layering of coloured decorating slips and glazes for special efffects. We have a beautiful range of slips and stoneware glazes available to students.
Number of participants: 7 max.
