Ceramic tags & objects

Sun 7th July, Ribblehead:10.30-12.30pm

Cost £15

A hand-built ceramics workshop on the theme of travelling and journeys; we will be making a 'travel tag' tile. As a potter, Rachel Whitfield incorporates the local natural environment of the Yorkshire Dales, so participants are requested to bring with them a collection of local natural materials (leaves, stems, textured rocks, local flowers, fossils and the like) for pressing into the clay. Works will then be taken for firings and glazing, to be picked up from her studio when ready in a few weeks time.
