What will I learn?
In this workshop Amy will take you through and demonstrate various techniques to explore the translucent properties of porcelain. Working with thin slabs you will have the opportunity to create a unique set of translucent Tealight Holders.
Using different textured rollers and materials from nature you will decorate pre-rolled porcelain slabs and learn how to transform them into a beautiful set of porcelain tealight holders to give as gifts or to treasure yourself.
The pieces will be fired and returned to Inspire Makers within a month. You can collect them from there or for a small fee they can be posted to you.
What do I need to bring?
Everything you need will be provided but if you have any interesting natural elements that you might like to use to create texture feel free to bring along.
Aprons are available for you to use however, as clay is involved, you may wish to wear clothes that can get messy!
