Lace Imprinted Bowl with Handles

3 June 2022

3 Spaces Available

About this Workshop

Making bowls are one of my favourite items to make because the possibilities are endless!

Skill Level: Beginners and Experienced Artists.

Workshop Date:

  • 3 June

You can use various techniques such as coil building, slab building or pinch pot.

You can add handles, legs and decorations. I also enjoy carving into coloured slips, this technique will show the colour of the clay where the slip is removed.

You can play with different shapes, your bowl can be more loose and organically shaped, it can be oval, round or even squared.

My students have freedom to design their work how they prefer. I will demonstrate the techniques and guide you every step of the way but you should add your own personal touch. Please send me a message if you would like to book your pottery experience or would like more information. xx
