Porcelain Workshop in McGregor

Montagu Events - Porcelain Workshop in McGregor
Experience working with porcelain clay and the wonders of creating delicate translucency.

In this 3.5 hour workshop you will be guided through rolling out thin slabs of porcelain and cutting and joining them to create bowls, mugs, tealight holders, jewelry or anything you can think of.

This is a wonderful workshop to do to get acquainted with working with porcelain. Because hand-building with porcelain can be tricky, the clay you will be using is paper porcelain which has had paper pulp added to it to make it much easier to work with. You will be given the recipe for how to make it too.

I will first demonstrate a few techniques and then you will be guided through the process of creating your own magical pieces. Let your imagination run wild! Once ready for collection, you will see how your creations turn translucent in the kiln through the firing process. This is a wonderful, ethereal and often mystifying medium.

All experience levels welcome!
