Buttons Bud Vases & Tealights

Details

Gwen will start the day by introducing you to porcelain clay, a beautiful material to work with; you are able to make quite fine pots as a complete beginner.

You will learn how to roll the clay to a usable thickness, then roll lace patterns of your choice into the clay. Once leather hard you will construct a slab pot, which may be a vase, or tea light. These pots may then be further embellished with clay buttons or lace; a coloured slip may be added at this stage to show up the texture in the lace patterns. Scraps of embellished clay left over may be made into buttons or jewellery, time allowing.

Greystoke Craft Garden (formerly Greystoke Cycle Cafe Tea Garden) is situated just 300yd north of the village green on the edge of the lovely village of Greystoke. The village nestles happily on the fringes of the Lake District National Park, 5 miles west of Penrith and the Eden Valley and 5 miles north of Ullswater. We have only limited parking and ask workshops attendees to enjoy the 300yd flat walking from the free village car park, alongside the racehorses and past the Castle walls. We will send maps etc on booking confirmation. We have 2 parking spaces reserved for those unable to walk this distance, please let us know. Drop off of students or materials is fine.
