6.30pm - 9.00pm
Ceramic artist Melanie Hopwood will lead this hands-on workshop to introduce you to the special qualities of porcelain clay. You will learn how to roll, cut, pierce, impress and emboss this fine, white, smooth clay to create a number of beautiful, delicate porcelain star and snowflake decorations. After the workshop Melanie will take away the decorations to kiln fire them, finishing with a clear shiny glaze, ready to return to you 2 to 3 weeks later, in plenty of time to give as unique Christmas gifts or hang on your own tree!
Workshop suitable for all abilities. All tools, cutters and textures will be provided but please bring any special ones of your own that you would like to use plus an apron or old shirt to protect your clothes.
Price: £25 which includes workshop tuition, all materials and a glass of wine. Bookings must be made in advance of the workshop.
