WORKSHOP : April 2, 2016.
FREE Ceramics Workshop
Always wanted to have a go at pottery? Now’s your chance!
We’re giving budding potters the opportunity to get hands-on in a free ceramics workshop. Led by ceramicist Verity Howard – whose Behind Closed Doors exhibition is on show here at MCDC until May 29th – this workshop is all about unleashing your inner creativity.
Verity will show you how to roll, cut and then monoprint your own white stoneware clay shape which can be made into a brooch, button, bead or plaque for you to take home.
Try something new, have a bit of fun and learn some new skills – who knows where it might lead?!
Suitable for all ages, no experience necessary.
Items can be fired and collected at a later date (small fee applies).
The response to this free ceramics workshop has been overwhelming! Please be aware that we will be operating on a first come first served basis so we advise that you get here early if you don’t want to miss out.
There will be two sessions:
Session 1: 10am – 12.30pm
Session 2: 1.30 – 4pm
So that as many of you as possible can take part, when you arrive you will have the opportunity to sign up for a half hour slot during one of these two sessions.
From 10am you will be able to sign up for one of the five slots in session 1 (10am-12.30pm) and from 1.30pm onwards you will be able to sign up for one of the five slots in session 2 (1.30-4.30pm).
No booking required
