Ceramic Pet Portrait Workshop

19 June @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Join in for a creative two-part ceramics workshop with Jakki Trainor of Figment Ceramics using your pet, real or dreamed of, as inspiration. In this two-part workshop you will create a relief clay panel of a chosen pet or favourite animal. Cats, dogs, guinea pigs, terrapins can be immortalised in your clay creation! You will develop key skills in mark making, adding textures and patterns to create detail and character in your relief clay panel of your pet.

In week one, Jakki will guide you through the design process, demonstrate successful mark making and relief assemblage and assist you in creating your personal piece of artwork.


In week two you will be introduced to the art of glazing. Jakki will demonstrate the use of underglazes and glazes and you will complete your ceramic panel in a range of colourful glazes. Your completed panel will be fired by Jakki and will be available for collection the following week from The Workshop Ballynahinch. You can choose to hang your panel directly on the wall – hanging ribbon supplied – or purchase a box frame to showcase your ceramic pet creation.


Cost includes all materials for both sessions and refreshments.
