Time: 3 hours
Limited to 8 people
Includes all materials (including a silicon lid for your keep cup), required equipment, glazing of your finished pieces, 2 kiln firings and a delicious morning tea.
This is a fun hands-on workshop for beginners, you will be hand building your very own keep cups via a coiling technique using a variety of marbled clays. You will learn how to prepare the clay and refine your shape to produce an awesome product, and how to adapt the technique to make a variety of other items. If we have enough time, you may also come away with a side plate and small cup or tumbler.
Your completed pieces will be bisque fired, glazed and fired again ready for you to collect approximately 3-4 weeks after your workshop.
