Create your own slip-cast fine bone china vessel under the guidance of award-winning Birmingham Ceramicist Wendy Tournay.
During this workshop you will be introduced to the slip casting process using pre-made plaster moulds. You will slip cast your own vessel using fine bone china casting slip. You will develop ideas for the surface of your vessel focussing on line and texture and test these out on a pre-cast tile before applying these to your vessel. Demonstrations will be given of each technique covered.
All materials and equipment will be provided. This course is suitable for all abilities. Finished fired and glazed pieces will be available to collect in store at Heal’s two weeks later.
Wendy Tournay designs and makes luxury handmade Contemporary fine bone china ceramics from her home studio in Edgbaston, Birmingham. She combines industrial processes and the finest bone china to produce unique minimalist pure white ceramic products to interest and excite the senses. Her work is inspired by the ethos of Scandinavian design with its functionality, honesty of materials and simplicity.
