New Year new skill - Playing with Porcelain




So have you ever thought of learning a new skill? or refreshing and old one?
or want to try something completely different?


If so the new 'Beginners Porcelain' starts a 5 week run from Wednesday 14th Jan 7-9pm £85 per person includes basic materials and firing.
You will learn how to handle porcelain, slab building, coiling and other techniques including a throwing session. 



Each week learning a new skill to create your own piece of work in this versatile and unique medium.
A opportunity to make your own personalised presents or create something special just for yourself or your home.



Please email info@juliemiles.co.uk for more details or see below for details. Places limited to 8 participants.
Workshops will take place at Higherford Mill, Gisburn Road, Barrowford Lancashire BB9 6JH. The workshop room will be heated but be aware to layer up as too warm a room dries the clay to fast to be pliable to work.



More details…….

For the first 3 week sessions I will demonstrate a technique and you will be able to spend the evening exploring how to create your own piece in porcelain. The following 2 weeks you will have the time to explore the techniques learnt and develop your own style experimenting with surface textures, colours and basic glazing techniques.
All materials are included including one firing week to with bisque or high firing. There will be an opportunity to buy collectively jewellery finding etc if needed to keep costs down for anything made.

The first week we will look at habndling the material and rolling slabs thin enough to create tea light holders or a vase.



*Please note Intermediate courses will start in March but you need to participate in a Beginners class with me before booking Intermediate or Advance classes

Below are some of the comments from the first series of workshops. 

"I think anyone who wants to learn something new, have a good evening and decorate their house with homemade crafts should definitely do this course."

Ann Rycroft


"To anyone considering this, it is a fantastic workshop/course. By the end of the first session we had all produced a lovely piece of work and after 3 sessions, we were throwing pots on the Potters wheel. Highly recommended."
