Fun With Clay Slip
with Elaine Wells
A one-day workshop, running 10am-4pm
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This workshop involves trailing coloured slips onto clay to create beautiful patterns.
Slip is a simple clay and water mixture with coloured pigment added and is a wonderful decorating tool. You will use coloured slips in squeezy bottles to produce decorated tiles or small plates made during the workshop. The tutor will start by demonstrating a variety of slip trailing techniques that can be used on clay.
After the workshop we will fire your work and add a clear glaze on top. Your finished items will be ready for collection within the month.
