Clay and Glass Workshop
July 13 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£25
In this clay workshop learn how to make stunning clay tiles or panels with indented areas incorporating melted glass.
Your work will be fired in a kiln to melt the glass, creating a lustrous surface which contrasts beautifully with the matt clay. You can choose to create a series of small pieces or focus on something more ambitious, working on your own ideas or using one of Peter’s designs. You can bring your own bits of coloured glass (even small pieces of bottle glass look great). All abilities welcome!

There is an additional charge of approx £15 per person towards materials and firing payable directly to the artist on the day.
