Head Planter Workshop (11 & 18 Sep)
Head Planter Workshop with Monte Lupo Arts: 2–5pm Saturday 11 & 18 September.
In this two-part workshop held over two Saturdays, you will learn from artist Kim Green from Monte Lupo Arts to sculpt and decorate your own unique ceramic head planter.
In the first week's 3-hour workshop, you will learn a range of hand-building pottery techniques including: scoring and slipping; coil building; slab building; and mould pressing. When you return in the second workshop, you will learn about underglazing for bisque ware and practise applying different painting and glazing techniques. Your glazed piece will be fired twice following this second workshop (the final time with a clear glaze), and finished pieces will be available for collection from Plant Empire from 25 September.
All levels of experience are welcome for this workshop, and all materials and equipment for the workshop will be supplied. We don't send workshop reminders after you've registered, but you don't need to bring anything on the day, except closed shoes and clothes you don't mind getting decorated with clay. This workshop is suitable for adults and children over 10 and all Plant Empire workshop presenters involving children are Blue Card holders.
