Come and learn how to make porcelain ceramic jewellery with Gillian of Gillybean Pottery.

 

This workshop will take place over two separate days. During the first session, you will learn how to use slip, which is clay in a liquid state, and plaster batts to create beautiful designs. Slip can be trailed, swirled, layered, mixed, or dragged with a needle tool to add patterns and colours. Gillian will guide you as you go.

 

Participants can make many pieces and at the end of the first session may choose their 5 favourite pieces for firing. Gillian will then fire and glaze the pieces before we come back for the second session to add our jewellery findings and admire our creations.


Each participant will create up to two finished sets of earrings (for pierced ears)
and one pendant with chain. All jewellery components are 100% recycled .925 Sterling Silver.

What’s included:
All tools and materials, tea/coffee & treats
Experience:
No prior experience required. A fairly steady hand is helpful and a little patience too,
waiting until the slip is just the right consistency before peeling off the batt.

Clothing:

No dragging sleeves and clothes you don't mind potentially getting messy. Aprons are provided.

Age:
This workshop is suitable for anybody over the age of 13. Young people aged 13-16
must be accompanied by another ‘booked in’ adult participant.

*ACCESSIBILITY* The building we rent is quite old. Unfortunately, this means that the door frames are quite narrow. Based on our measurements, a wheelchair will not fit nor is our toilet room large enough to accomodate a wheelchair. We apologise deeply as we wish to be accessible to all. Unfortunately, we are not in a position to make any structural changes to the building. If you use mobility aides and there is any way we can accommodate them so that you can enjoy our space, please let us know and we will do everything we can!
