Relief Applique Tiles in Porcelain with Gwen Bainbridge Quirky Workshop at Greystoke Craft Garden


fun short session with Gwen creating your own re-useable plant tags using lace or natural materials (pressed flowers/grasses) to create lovely textured tags with their own label.

Once fired these tags can be used time and again by writing on them with a permanent marker pen, then when you want to plant something else, just wipe off with everyday nail varnish remover and start again!

Say goodbye to those plastic plant tags and your own 'creative hello' to a bit of art in the garden. No experience necessary, just come and have some fun creating. Porcelain is a very hard clay which when high-fired, is frost proof, so no worries about putting these outside in the Cumbrian winters!

Gwen will take your tags back to her studio for firing, they can be collected either from there or from Quirky Workshops. Postage to your home will also be available at an extra cost.

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.

Parking: free

Accessible by Public Transport: 5 miles from Penrith station
