15. Paint-a-Plate: design a unique large glazed pottery platter
Create a distinctive new centrepiece for your dinner table, a decorative plate to hang on your wall, or a unique gift for a special occasion. This class is an easy and fun combination of creative expression and learning the basics of ceramic glazing techniques, understanding how they change in the kiln to create vibrant and exciting new colours and textures. WHAT HAPPENS IN THE CLASS? 1) Come to our cosy and light-filled studio in Central London (SE1), 10 min from London Bridge / 3 min from Borough Station. 2) Create your own design for the plate, sketch it first on paper. It can be abstract🟣 , still life🍄 , crazy portrait 👩‍🦱 or even a picture of your dog🐶 ! You can use your own design or get inspired from the examples provided. 3) Learn about pottery glazes: from the chemistry basics, to various glazing application techniques. There will be a glazing, mark-making and painting demonstration: Here you will be shown the 3 basic steps to creating your own glazed ceramic platter. 4) You will transfer your design to a large (33cm) pottery dish and paint it with real ceramic glazes. (not ceramic paints like in pottery cafes!). The results will be unexpected with a water-colour like effect, but always stunning! 5) Pick up your piece in a weeks time (or we can deliver it to you for a fee) and enjoy your design with oozy glazes and vibrant colours. FIRED WORKS PICK-UP/DELIVERY Your work will need to dry and be fired by our technician in the following week before it is ready for pick-up. You will be given several pickup slot options at the end of your class. We will provide sustainable bubble wrap options but please bring bags or boxes for transportation. Each student is responsible for packing their own work. We also offer the option for posting your works within the UK with an added cost of £25.00 to be made upfront. While we will take care in packaging your works responsibly we are not liable for any breakages or losses that may occur in the postage process.
