Miniature Ceramic House Workshop - with Janelle Peterson

In this hands-on and experimental workshop, local ceramic artist, Janelle Peterson, will introduce you to the versatile technique of slab building. You will use stamping and found objects to create texture and learn how incorporate push molds to add interesting elements to your work and discover almost endless possibilities. You will also be taught joining and finishing techniques.
Using these techniques you will produce your very own collection of unique and handcrafted miniature ceramic houses. What you complete will then be dried, bisque fired and then glaze fired. Due to time constraints, Janelle will glaze your pieces for you, with the glazes you request on the day. Your work will be available to collect from Designer Dirt in 3 to 4 weeks.
