Workshop Number Five

It was a rather chilly start but the sun soon came out and had us outside, clay and moulds drying

2016-06-09 12.42.35-2

There were lots of passersby stopping to chat and find out what we are about and to book on to one of our sessions.

Our afternoon workshop was very welcome in the cool of the coach-house, with some wonderful designs both tiles as well as our pots being produced

A different approach to using map stencils

Alternative Mark Making

Whilst we have tested mark making with stencils, glaze dipped material and sponging directly on to the pots, we had some a chance outcome on one particular pot which we had not even planned.

Whilst removing the pot from the mould, transfers of fingerprints were left and serendipitously fit with mapping the ‘hands on’ experience of the making process

We will be testing ways of highlighting these further over the next few days.  Using mark making tools and tearing into the pots also produced interesting outcomes

All Mapped Out

With the regeneration process well underway, we feel it would be poignant to ‘map’ the area by inviting workshop participants to mark their territory and put themselves on the map as it were.

We are creating stencils of the local area to use as transfers to decorate the pots

Our tests produced interesting results

Tall, Small and Somewhere In Between

As with our test bricks, our colour test pots have emerged out of the kiln

 

Some of the glazes have come out much darker than we anticipated but some interesting results nonetheless
