During this 1 day workshop you will spend the morning learning the process of slip casting using plaster moulds to cast your own Stem Vase and tealights/pots in porcelain. You will have the opportunity to cast 4 pieces.
After lunch you will then learn how to decorate your casted pieces with a variety of different surface decoration techniques using coloured slips, stains and different tools to create sgraffito, textures and patterns.
