Event description

Description

A brand new two-day workshop with Lise Moorcroft in which you will learn all about Lise's unique aesthetic and how to put her techniques into practice. On the first day, Lise will give a short talk and presentation about her work, the techniques and stages involved in the process she uses to achieve her unique aesthetic. You will learn how to translate your own designs to the clay surface, adapting them to fit the form, before tubelining and recreating the style for which Lise is best-known. On the second day, once the decorated ware has firmed up, you will learn to add colour with underglazes to enhance the design and body of the pieces. By arrangement and for a small charge, your finished work can be bisque fired for collection or sent on to you by courier. You can then glaze and fire your piece at home, or by arrangement return to Potclays to do this at a later date.

Lise Moorcroft has been an independent ceramic artist for thirty years and comes from a long line of Moorcrofts including her father, Walter Moorcroft and her grandfather, William Moorcroft. She specialises in bespoke ceramic pieces, each completely unique, specialising in surface design incorporating designing and sketching on clay, tube lining, under-glazing, and hand painting of numerous glazes over the course of several firings to create texture and depth, and finally a lustre firing for her trademark iridescent finish, with some pieces embellished with metal leaf and the use of crystals.

Items to bring: Simple design sketches to work with, apron, notepad & pen, (optional) your own greenware tiles or other shapes - thrown, handbuilt, slipcast - to supplement those provided, means of getting your finished work home (e.g. cardboard crate)

Included: Course materials, lunch, refreshments, preferential discounts against all of our products. The sliptrailing kit provided is yours to keep after the course.
