Discover the art of slip casting with precious porcelain in this 2 hour class.

Porcelain is the diva of clays. Beautiful, strong, delicate. Objects made with porcelain have been collected and sought after for centuries. 

In this class you will discover the magic of slip casting objects with liquid porcelain. 

We will cover the basics of working with liquid porcelain and the process from start to finish. You will learn to mix liquid porcelain with stains to create coloured clay and then you will be able to pour up to 2 pieces. You will learn how to clean up the piece and you will be able to experiment with various pouring techniques to achieve stunning results with coloured clays.

The pieces you create can also be perfect as thoughtful gifts.
