ceramic wall plaque

Ceramic Wall Plaques

with Laura Lane

Having completed both a BA & MA in Design, Laura specialised as a Designer Maker, working in ceramics. At the heart of her work is the exploration of site-specific folklore in Cornwall, where she lives. This is expressed through choice of materials and contemporary pattern and illustration.

In this workshop, you will look at her particular design process to create a series of ceramic wall plaques that have a strong sense of narrative.
If you have a particular tale from your local area that you would like to use, please bring it along with you to develop or inspire an illustration. 

Learn slab rolling, slip and sgraffito techniques (which is very much like Lino cutting) to create your own wall plaque. Decorate with surface pattern and Laura’s signature blue slip & white glaze. Your designs will be fired and ready for you to collect 2 weeks later. There will be a small charge of £5 for materials.

Cathedral Windows

with Iris Marriott

This technique is used here to make stars which could be a starry Christmas Night or spectacular fireworks.  Iris has used black with vibrant colours or it could be something more subtle. 

We will start with the basic square block which makes the traditional Cathedral Window or Secret Garden and can go on to more complicated oblongs or off-centre squares if time permits.  Again these blocks are more or less complete in themselves so it can be as big or small as you wish, which is ideal for cot quilts, bags or cushions.

Christmas/Greetings Cards – painted with Gouache

with Nancy Pickard

Gouache paint has long been used by designers to make full colour images for print. Gouache is a form of watercolour, but it is more opaque. It dries quickly and so makes it possible to build up really vibrant paintings with a wealth of decorative detail.

Nancy will show you how to design, paint, and then photograph work suitable for your own personal Christmas or greetings cards. After the workshop, she will load them up to a website which offers high quality digital printing of your own designs. She will run through the options for ordering as many of your cards as you would like. These come packed in individual cellophane, and can have your own message inside and on the back.

Who knows, perhaps you would like to develop a range of your own cards?
