New Date 26th June 10am-12pm
Ceramic Button/Tile Making Create a number of unique ceramic buttons or tiles to your own design with Margaret from Clay and Wood Works
A fantastic opportunity to create a number of unique ceramic buttons or tiles to your own design, which you can use on your own special projects (an item of clothing, a cushion, splashback, tabletop etc)
On the day you’ll learn the techniques for making ceramic buttons/tile from scratch, this includes clay preparation, cutting, texture and colour. Glazing and kiln firing will be done after the workshop by Margaret. Your dozen best pieces will be available for collection from Fabrication in Leeds.
No previous experience is necessary.
The workshop is run by Margaret Glackin who is an experienced ceramic designer-maker.
