Event description

Description

In this festive creative workshop you will hand paint 4 circular bisque-fired porcelain decorations with beautiful underglaze paints, crayons and pencils, under Amanda's guidance. Amanda will kick-start the session with a demonstration of how she goes about painting her own decorations using masking techniques etc. Your decorations will be high-fired back at Amanda's studio, and finished with a wax coated string - so they'll be ready for collection and hanging on your tree at home the following week.

This workshop is suitable for adults, and older children. Refreshments will be provided.


About Amanda-Sue Rope

Amanda-Sue creates wheel-thrown and hand-built ceramic pieces using both porcelain and stoneware clay bodies. These ceramic forms are then hand-painted using slips, underglazes, onglazes, transfers and lustres.

The built environment and its relationship with nature – sometimes easy and sometimes discordant – are the starting points for Amanda-Sue’s work. Through a combination of drawing and photography she records observations of her surroundings, from which she then distils and abstracts, seeking out structural harmonies and rhythms. These visual distillations are painted onto the ceramic, punctuating its form, pacing around the exterior and often spreading into the interior.

Amanda-Sue studied Fine Art at Newcastle University, MA Communication Design at Central Saint Martins, and has worked as a graphic designer, illustrator and lecturer. Her explorations with ceramics started in 2012 and became the main focus of her practice in 2015.
