Ceramic Transfer Workshop With Katherine Lees
Saturday 3rd September, 10.30-12.30pm
Space2 – Manchester Craft & Design Centre
Award winning ceramicist Katherine Lees will demonstrate to you the use of ceramic transfers and help you create your own narrative to decorate a piece using glazed, pre-fired china and decorative decals. On the day you will create a plate or bowl, which will be taken away to fire and returned for you to collect 2 weeks later. All materials are provided. You can see an example of how Katherine uses ceramic decals in her own work.
Refreshments are not provided, however you can grab a bite to eat at the lovely Oak Street Cafe Bar situated within the Craft Centre.
This workshop will give you the skills to make your own unique piece whilst at the same time having lots of fun with like minded people. And you’ll receive a fired plate or bowl – which could make the perfect unique gift for a loved one!
