What will be covered:
In this half-day workshop with ceramicist Andrew Macdermott, you will work through the techniques required to produce your own mugs from a slab of clay.

Andrew will guide you through rolling clay slabs, measuring and cutting, forming cylinders and joining all the pieces to create either a handled or handleless mug depending on your preference.

You will then finish your mug with coloured slip decoration, using techniques such as free hand brushing, sgraffito or stencilling as Andrew will demonstrate.

Your mugs will need to dry completely before being bisque fired. A transparent glaze will be applied before they are fired again resulting in your finished piece which will be ready to collect approx. 4 weeks after the workshop.

What will students leave with?
Students will leave with a unique hand built and decorated mug, transparent glazed, ready to collect 4 weeks after the workshop.
