A Textured Porcelain VASE ~ Cath Ball of Stitiched Ceramics
Join Cath for morning to make your own special decorated plate.
AM workshop Porcelain Plate 10am -12.30pm
+/or PM workshop Porcelain Vase 2pm - 4.30pm
Choose either the morning or afternoon sessions depending on the piece you wish to make. If both sessions are booked a tasty lunch is included.
We are delighted to welcome talented Cumbrian artist, Cath from Stitched Ceramics offering these two lovely short courses over one day.
You will be using hand building techniques to make your very own beautiful plate, or vase, using gleaming white porcelain clay. Once rolled out using special 'guides', Cath will show you how to add special textures to the surface of the clay using a collection of laces and fabric. If you have any of your own textured fabrics/lace, that you'd like to include, please bring them along.
Your piece will then be carefully tranpsorted to Cath’s studio, based in Thursby, near Carlisle,to be glazed and fired. When complete you can collect your Porcelain from either Thursby, or Greystoke or can choose to have it then posted out at an extra charge (around £6).
We hope you'll love using your special textured Porcelain for many years to come. They are also safe for you to use in the oven or dishwasher.
