About the Event
Brand new workshop - the first in the 'Play with Clay' series.
This is a TWO-PART workshop, the second part being on Weds Feb 9th. Please see below for more info.
Here's your first chance to play with clay at the Dixie Dot Studio!
Come along and learn the basics of using clay to create your own design.
After learning some hints and tips and 'how it works' you will be rolling your clay and shaping as desired. Only you can get creative with all of our stamps including alphabet stamps for you to imprint your chosen word. It doesn't have to be a name, you could choose 'love' or 'family' for example.
Once finished we will leave the clay to dry thoroughly for a few weeks before it's fired in the kiln.
At this point it becomes bisqueware and is ready for painting.
The second session on the 9th Feb is the painting session using our specialist ceramic paints. You can get creative to mix colours or maybe paint it all in one colour of different shades to match the room it's going in - the choice is yours.
The item is then left to dry and is glazed and fired like any other piece in the studio. It will be ready for collection approximately a week later.
All tools, tuition and refreshments are included in the price which also covers BOTH sessions. You do not have to pay twice.
If you are unable to attend the second session you are able to buy a paint at home kit for £5 and take your bisqueware away to do in your own time, returning for firing when it's finished.
