17 July | Decorating with Water Erosion Technique (age 16+)

Date: Sunday 17 July
Times: 10:00 – 12:00
Tutor: Mirka Golden-Hann

Course description:

In this short course you will be introduced to the method of decorating porcelain using water erosion. This method allows you to decorate with subtle patterns through creating layers by masking and carefully washing away parts of the material. The results are gentle and dreamy.

This short course is ideal for those who have just attended the porcelain throwing workshop, but if you would like to join us for just this course we will have porcelain test tiles for you to practice on.
