Price is for up to two people, for a workshop in my studio space, using studio materials and tools with bespoke timings arranged to your requirements. You’ll make one large plate each after practising on a tile. I’ll email a sheet to help you prepare your design.

Imagine the pleasure of eating from or giving a hand made plate that you have designed and drawn yourself. Or make something to commemorate an occasion or person. You can pre-work on your design, whilst I’ll hand make the plates so they are ready in the leather hard stage. You’ll have a tile to experiment on, and then you’ll work straight into your plate.

Three options:
1] Sgraffito technique: a traditional studio ceramic technique of carving away a top layer (white in this case) to reveal a contrasting clay body below ( a delicious dark clay which is excitingly called Vulcan, and will finish a rich chocolate brown). Most often glazed clear but tinted transparent colours can be used too.

OR

2] Mishima technique: using inlays. You’ll carve pattern into a white plate, and then backfill with coloured liquid clays. Most often glazed with celadons, tinted transparent glazes

OR do both: 2 hours.

We’ll create your glaze plan, I’ll glaze for you and then can deliver locally or arrange postage for further beyond se7, se8 or se10.

Recommended for over 8’s, and under 12 booked with an adult please. I can discuss bringing this project to your own space too, additional travel charge may apply.
