Suitable for all, this class will begin with a look at some of the basic techniques of working with clay to create beads and pendants. Through the morning, the lesson will focus on making designs with a woodland theme. You will be creating flat and sculpted work and will have the opportunity to develop your own ideas. After lunch, we will focus of decoration using underglazes, and learn about the stages of firing and glazing. All work will have to be fired twice, so your finished beads and pendants will be forwarded to you the week after the lesson.

Flame Off classes are held the day before Flame Off starts on the Friday 15th April at Uttoxeter Racecourse.
(Flame Off will be on 16th - 17th)
