Easter Workshop

A few weeks ago I had a workshop with the ladies from the Belle Vue Craft Group. We had a great time making porcelain Easter decorations and bunting. In the first week the pieces were created by using lace, papers and objects to imprint in to the surface and cutters were used for shapes.

 
We let the pieces dry out and in the second week the ladies decorated their own pieces by using underglaze and techniques such as inlay and paper resist to create colour and patterns. They were then bisc fired.
 






Glazed and then fired again. These are the fab results! They are going to look great as a decoration or a string of bunting. Lovely pieces of work from a very talented bunch!

 

 

 

Happy Easter

I would like to wish you all a very Happy Easter and have a lovely bank holiday!
