Sculpting a Portrait Head from Life
Saturday 27 March: 10:00-16:00

​Description

A one-day face-to-face ceramic sculpture course modelling a portrait head from life using stoneware clay.  We will cover all of the practical techniques to create a fired portrait head, including creating a basic shape using a coil building method, how to establish correct proportion and getting the correct surface texture and finish.  During the course you will work from a live model and will learn how to observe and interpret detail effectively.

Your portrait head will be completed on the day and then fired for you to bisque (if you want to glaze or add oxides at a later stage) or stoneware (to totally vitrify the clay ready if you are not planning any further surface decoration).

A 2-course lunch is included in the course price - please advise of any allergies on booking. All materials are also included.

Porcelain Agateware Bowls
Saturday 1 May: 10:00-16:00

​Description

Following on from the successful Porcelain Agateware Jewellery Masterclass, this one-day workshop is an opportunity to work with porcelain clay and manipulate coloured porcelain layers in different configurations to make a variety of dishes and bowls. The name agateware is derived from the agate stone, which when sliced shows multicolored layers. This pottery technique allows for both precise and thought out patterns, and free random effects.

A 2-course lunch is included in the course price - please advise of any allergies on booking. All materials are also included.
