Porcelain Hydrangea Heads Course

Porcelain Hydrangea Heads Course

3 sessions - £180:  Various dates- please email for information.  Two students per course  (to allow for social distancing).
Using soft and smooth porcelain clay, make your own stunning and sculptural hydrangea heads for your home or garden.  These beautiful heads are placed on metal canes and can be placed into pots or the flower border to wave their delicate heads in the breeze. 

1st session - 2.5 hours.  This first session will concentrate on the foundation structure and it is hoped that each student will make a set of 2-3 heads during this course.  These will be wrapped to keep the clay viable ready for the next session.

2nd session - 2.5 hours.  This session will concentrate on making the individual flowers for the hydrangea heads using cutters and moulds, adhering them to the foundation structures already made.

3rd session - 2.5 hours.  Time to glaze your pieces in colours of your choice from our extensive range of brush on Amaco glazes and enhancing with glass frit if desired (two weeks later to allow for biscuit firing).

All inclusive price includes all clay and equipment, biscuit firing, glaze and glaze firing. All tuition, equipment, tools, clay and glazes will be provided to allow you to unleash your creativity.  The aim is to produce 2-3 pieces of work that can then be finished at the second session, returning two or three weeks later once your pieces are dried and biscuit fired for glazing.  We aim to get your glazed work through the kiln for you to collect about 2-4 weeks after the glazing session.  Fun and informative – always great with a friend.
