Make your own matching bowl set
Come along on Wednesday afternoons (finished before school pick up!) 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 slip casting course students will design their own bowl from scratch with the help of the teacher. Perhaps a cereal bowl, soup bowl, pasta bowl...
The first day we make the form you would like to make, 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.
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.
