Ceramics Taster: Cut Out

Colour fanciers learn how to carve, layer, incise and scratch colourful designs onto and into leatherhard clay. We’ll show you a range of ceramic decorative techniques and processes. Experiment with stencils and wire loop tools to lay whatever design might take your fancy – we tend to go geometric but that’s our thing.

You’ll apply a design to shallow oblong dishes approximately 12cm x 24cm x 3cm.
