Mould Making & Hand Building Ceramics with Phoebe Cummings – Saturday 22 June
Saturday 22 June
£60 inc. materials, lunch & refreshments
This workshop will explore the potential of sprig moulding and hand-building techniques. Two-dimensional designs and found objects will be used as a starting point to create simple press moulds, from which you will construct and adapt into more elaborate three-dimensional forms. This workshop will consider relationships between historic design, craft and contemporary sculpture.
