Introduction to Hand Built Ceramics
Saturday 1 February 2020, 10.30am - 4pm
Join ceramicist Meghan Downs as she guides you through a range of hand-building techniques to produce your own ceramic sculpture.
Meghan will demonstrate techniques including; slab-building, using plaster moulds to form shapes, coiling and making pinch-pots, which you can combine to build a ceramic sculptural piece. The piece will be bisque fired and returned to you to decorate.
