Details

Gwen will start the day by introducing you to porcelain clay, a beautiful material to work with; you are able to make quite fine pots as a complete beginner. You will learn how to roll the clay to a usable thickness, then roll lace patterns of your choice into the clay. Once leather hard you will construct a slab pot, which may be a vase, or tea light. These pots may then be further embellished with clay buttons or lace; a coloured slip may be added at this stage to show up the texture in the lace patterns. Scraps of embellished clay left over may be made into buttons or jewellery, time allowing.
