Ceramics Taster: Press

Do and do again.

PRESS is an introduction to small batch production. You’ll explore how to reproduce shapes using plaster moulds and then customise your pieces with wire loop cutting tools. This one is for biophiliacs: you’ll be making small indoor planters – ideal for succulents and other small plants.

Press moulding is a quasi-industrial method of production. Moulds enable the consistent repetition of form but have the flexibility to act as starting points for further adaptation.

Prerequisites: none, designed for beginners or anyone wanting to refine existing skills.

Includes:

  • Materials.
  • Post production costs: firings and glazing service.
  • Packaging. Postage is not included.
  • Booking fees.

Cup at Mauds House

hand-pressed-carved-clay-planter

September was a busy month for ceramics workshops out & about. The first one I hosted this Autumn was the Ceramics Taster: Cup at Mauds House in Skipton. The welcome was warm & cosy. Guests were greeted at the door with a cheery chalk board and just inside there was a large glass jar of chilled juice and a large bowl of brownies. I didn’t have time to take many pictures of the workshop in progress but here are the finished results. Participants also enjoyed a 10% discount off goods at Mauds House during the workshop. Tempting. Very tempting…
