Sept Botanical Tiles in Porcelain Paperclay Workshop


Saturday 15th September, 10-4pm, £70

Create a beautiful set of porcelain tiles using foliage and flowers, while learning the basics of working with paperclay.

Artist and Ceramic Sculpture tutor, Emily Joy, will teach you how to experiment with paperclay and discover what plant materials create the clearest impressions. You will discuss composition ideas and then move on to making your own individual tiles. You can choose the size of your tiles (from coasters to wall-plaque size) and then explore the foliage and flowers supplied. Look into the meaning of plants and bring your own favourite foliage and even add text to your tiles.

Once your designs are complete you can add colour to bring out the delicate, intricate details. Finally you can raw-glaze or leave the tiles matt porcelain. All the materials are included for this workshop, including having your work fired. Please note, you will need to collect your tiles from Victoria Works after a couple of weeks.

Please bring an apron or wear old clothes for this workshop.
