When Starts Saturday 30th March 9:30am - Ends Sunday 31st March 2019 4:00pm
  Constructing pieces made from Coloured Porcelain Slip, with Australian ceramic artist John Tuckwell.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Initially self taught, and having made simple works in clay for many years, John Tuckwell completed a Diploma of Arts at the Australian National University, Canberra. From that point John started to work with porcelain, seeking inspiration from his surrounding natural environment.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

  • Why slip and why porcelain
  • Loving your slip. How to mix and maintain runny clay.
  • Mixing paper into slip
  • Blending and colouring porcelain slips
  • Simple slip casting. Making a story inside a mold
  • Demonstration of making a plaster slab
  • Laminating coloured clay on and off a plaster slab
  • Adding colour after casting
  • Joining A to B - Construction techniques
  • Sources of inspiration.
