Workshop: Pottery Painting
Saturday 30 June 2018
Led by local ceramic artist Eve Carroll and drawing inspiration from the wonderful surroundings of the Swiss Garden, this creative art session will focus on nature, wildlife and some of the 18th century architectural elements found in the garden.
Participants will be encouraged to sketch out a design based on their own particular interests, and will learn how to transfer those drawings onto tiles using ceramic paint. All ceramic paints are water-based and there will be a wide range of soft, natural colours to choose from. Once the paint is applied, the tiles will be left to dry and coated with a layer of transparent glaze back at Eve’s studio – they can then be collected from the visitor centre at Shuttleworth after a 2-week period, or posted to participants.*
This lovely workshop will allow you to explore your creativity and to produce your own beautifully painted ceramic tile to enjoy at home or give to someone special as a personalised gift.
*Extra costs apply for postage – £5 per item.
