Pottery – Surface Decoration Design and Techniques (starts 02/02/21)

Start date:

2 February 2021

Start time:


On this fun, creative course we will be exploring a range of different techniques to design and create surface decoration and texture.

We will be using a range of materials that you should be able to collect or find around the house such as paper, card, glue, string, textured materials such as bubble wrap, netting from onions or fruit etc, paint, pastels, colouring pencils or felt tips for adding colour.

This will be chance for you to be experimental and to try out different techniques in a relaxed informal class and you will end up with a range of beautiful textured designs. You may even wish to take your designs and techniques to use in pottery, printing or textiles in the future.

Please bring a natural object with you for the first week like leaf, shell, flower (something that you have collected) and pencil and paper.

These will not be needed each week but it will be good to collect as many as you.

Card – old cereal box, tea box, cardboard boxes.

Plain A4 paper and any coloured and textured papers you may have lying around such as old wallpaper, kitchen roll, corrugated card or tissue paper.
