Penryn Arts Festival- Ceramics Workshop

October 24, 2017

A couple of weeks ago I attended my first ceramics workshop which was organised for Penryn Arts Festival by Cat and Rosie at Field Notes. I thought I'd share some photos from the lovely evening, where we all learnt how to make plates and bowls by hand-building.

Whilst the basic technique was the same, it was amazing to see how unique everyone's creations turned out to be! All of us made two plates, one that we get to keep ourselves and one that we donate to the Arts Festival to be used in future workshops for communal meals.

We had a break halfway through the workshop to share a meal, which featured an array of delicious food- butternut squash curry, lentil dahl, rice, salads and chutneys. It was really nice to meet and talk to different people outside of university too.
After our meal, we returned to our creations to add colour using slips to paint our own designs on. There was a huge range of styles from abstract to minimalist, with faces, animals and plants all making appearances. 
Above left is a plate made by Sam next to me, I loved the patterns she used! Mine is the one on the right, which should be a dark blue-green once fired (we'll wait and see!)
So many fun designs! 
Have a look at the Penryn Arts Festival for more workshops! 

Have you tried any arts workshop recently? What would you like to try out?
