8 week evening mould making & Slip-casting course
Term 3 - Open projects
Thursday Nights 7-9pm
Thursday 18th July - 12 September 2019 (1st August skipped)
Choose your own form (eg. cup, bowl, plate)
Come along on Thursday nights to make your own slip-cast project.
Eucalypt Homewares classes are perfect for beginners and complete novices. If you have never worked with clay before please feel very welcome to come and experience the fun and satisfaction of creating something functional with your hands.
In this 8 week course students will choose which form they would like to design and make. Perhaps a dinner plate, side plate, bowl or cup. You decide what you would like to make with-in the parameters of size and one piece drop-out mould.
The first night we make the form you would like to make (eg cup, bowl or plate), the second week we make the plaster mould. Over the following 5 weeks we slip-cast, decorate with Eucalypt Homewares decals, then glaze the 8 pieces. The last week is post firing sanding, a little class party and an opportunity to look at and admire the classes works - maybe even get some inspiration for your next class.
Decals are images/patterns printed onto special tissue paper with ceramic inks. They are released from the tissue onto the clay before it is fired in the kiln. Once fired they are permanently attached to the ceramic body, ie they won't wash off! You will learn how to use them in the class no experience is needed.
My decals come in blue, red, green and black, with lots of patterns to choose from (all have been designed by me for my tableware, only students from my classes have the opportunity to use them).
These classes are perfect to enjoy with a group of friends or come along by yourself and meet new ones. They are very social, relaxing and heaps of fun.
Cost includes all clay materials and firing.
Please Note: Tickets are strictly non-refundable nor transferable to another class date. If you can no longer make the class you are welcome to transfer your ticket to a friend.
