The ‘Clayful’ workshops will introduce you to working with clay and allow you to explore the possibility of the material in a creative and supportive environment. You will learn the hand-building process of ‘drape-forming’ to create your very own bespoke ceramic plate.
In workshop one, Hollie will demonstrate how to make your plate and support you in making your own creation. You will then make your plate uniquely yours by adding patterns or stamp lettering. You are also welcome to bring any of your own texture stamps or even flowers to press into the clay.
In workshop two, you will be invited to glaze your piece choosing from a range of colours. Once your design is complete your plate will be fired by Hollie. You will then have the option of collecting your finished piece later at an arranged time and date.
These sessions have been partially subsidised with the support of our funders to provide this opportunity.
Photographs will be taken during the course of the workshop and may be shared online, in print material and to promote National Festival of Making and/or Hollie Cooper’s work in the future. Please let us know before the session if you would not like to be included in any photography.
