Participants are invited to take part in a one day porcelain slip casting workshop which encourages makers to think about the significance of colour in terms of relating meaning or invoking a mood or an emotion.
Examples of contemporary and classical sculpture and painting will be provided as examples of how other artists think about and control colour in their work. Basic colour theory principles will be referenced.
Participants will be provided with a series of plaster moulds and taken through the slip casting method. Using a range of coloured slips they will be guided to create a unique piece of porcelain sculpture.
The pieces will be fired by the artist and participants can return the following week to collect or they can be posted at the participants expense.
Participants need to bring aprons or clothes that can get dirty on the day and their own lunch. Everything else will be provided.
