WORKSHOP - Ceramics Christmas Decorations and Tea Light Holder - Focus Gallery, Nottingham

  • Focus Gallery, 108 Derby Road Nottingham, England, NG1 5FB United Kingdom (map)

All materials included - book via eventbrite or in person at the Focus Gallery £35 - Discount for booking this and the Ceramic Jewellery workshop both on 10th November 

Participants of the course will make about 8 keep sake hanging decorations, gift tags and plaques and 1 or 2 tea light holders. I will show the class simple and more complex pottery techniques to create pattern and texture using a vast variety of cutters and stamps which I will provide a really vast array - think everything from flowers, hearts and dinosaurs to letters, clouds and houses and lots of Christmas.

As the pieces dry I will demonstrate glazing and bring along examples of the colours for the class to glaze their own pieces. The finished items will be loaded into individual boxes and taken away to be fired in the kiln and will be ready for collection at the Focus Gallery shop approx. 1 week later.

I will bring examples of what can be made, please bring along any stamps/textures you want to try in the clay, any ideas or sketches you may have. Or just come along and see what creativity inspires you on the day!

No previous experience required, lots of fun to be had playing with clay – recommended to bring an apron but clay doesn’t stain. Suitable for adults and responsible children.

Max 10 participants – get in touch if you want to arrange a party for you and your friends.

All of the wonderful workshops held at the Focus Gallery are held in the worskhop room below the gallery with only stair access.
