Ceramic Sheep Workshop

A summer Season of Craft workshops at the Market Place Theatre and Arts Centre.

Age 8 to 12.

Using fresh Stoneware clay you will hand build two ceramic sheep, which can be used as toothbrush or candleholders.  Under the guidance of tutor Cait Hannity you will learn how to measure and shape the clay for each body section. Add texture by creating a hairy woollen coat for your sheep by using a garlic press and wooden cutting and shaping tools. Use your imagination and individual style when sculpting the face of your sheep to give them personality. Add horns and cute facial features to complete your woolly friend.

When completed your sheep will be taken back to the artist’s studio to dry and then fired in the kiln in two stages. A transparent glaze is applied and kiln fired a second time to make your sheep waterproof and durable. Your finished sheep will be returned to you in 3 weeks

All materials provided. Please wear comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting messy!
