Constructing a vessel using slab rolled stoneware clay decorated to your own design. Construct your own vessel from rolled stoneware clay, cutting and joining two slabs of clay and adding a base. You will be shown various techniques to decorate your vessel, perhaps you have your own creative ideas to explore? The surfaces will be your blank canvas for your own designs using coloured slips, stencils and creating texture. The day will begin with a coffee and chat with Jenny, all techniques will be demonstrated, you will be encouraged to experiment with your own ideas in a relaxed atmosphere enjoying the views from Jennys workshop in rural Sussex. Your work will be glazed and fired and will be ready for you to collect around two weeks after the workshop. No experience necessary.
About your mentor
Jenny Wightwick
When your mentor provides a strapline it will go here
My background includes textiles, Art Foundation and a BA Hons in Creative Practice 3D Design. I have wide experience in teaching creative courses to adults. I have a fascination with clay, its versatility intrigues me, and I enjoy encouraging others to explore and develop their own ideas in this wonderful medium. My practice starts with an idea that I mull over for a while and can involve more than one process. My work is process-led and ideas develop as I manipulate in stoneware clay. Experimentation is an important part of my work and it is sometimes necessary to revisit an old technique as a starting point. People are never disappointed in this one-day workshop because everyone can make progress and enjoy the process of creating with versatility.
