Pond Creatures Workshop (19 & 26 June)
Pond Creatures Workshop with Jane du Rand: 2pm Saturday 19 & 26 June.
In this 5-hour workshop held over two weeks, you will learn from ceramic and mosaic artist Jane du Rand to bring your favourite water-loving creatures to life using clay. These pieces can be used on their own as ornaments or to make a mobile, or used as feature tiles in a mosaic bird bath for those joining this workshop with Jane on 4 & 11 December (and as shown the photos above). Register for both workshops to save 10% on the total cost.
In the first week's 3-hour workshop, you will draw your favourite pond creatures and then bring them to life with clay. You will have the choice to make frogs, dragonflies, fish and water birds using your own selection of decorative finishes and colours. Reference photos will be supplied, and you are also encouraged to bring your own images of pond creatures that you would like to recreate in clay.
Finished pieces will be bisque fired following the first workshop, before you return for the second 2-hour workshop to glaze your pond creatures. These will then be kiln-fired again the following week, and will be ready for collection from Plant Empire from 3 July. All materials and equipment for the workshop, including clay and glazes to make the ceramic pieces will be supplied.
All levels of experience welcome. This workshop is targeted for adults, but is also suitable for teenagers or tweens when accompanying an adult or older sibling. All Plant Empire workshop presenters involving children are Blue Card holders.
