Special One Day Porcelain Tealight and Christmas Decoration Workshop with Katie Almond

Sunday 2nd December 2018

Join illustrator and ceramicist Kate Almond for this special one day workshop working with porcelain, surface treatments and the application of under glaze colours to create a Porcelain Tea Light Holder and three Porcelain Christmas Decorations!

Porcelain Tea light holder

Be inspired by Katie’s samples and learn how to construct your very own porcelain tea light holder. We will cover hand-building techniques and surface decoration to create a unique and fully functioning tea light holder. Christmas themed stamps and tools will also be available if you wish to create a Christmas themed piece!

Christmas Decorations

Have fun creating 3 Christmas hanging porcelain decorations. Choose from Christmas puds, robins, Holly and stars. Add texture and coloured glazes to make your special decorations!

Please bring along an Apron!!

Katie will take your work back to her studio for drying and firing and then it will be posted to you via 2nd Class Royal Mail.

Included: All materials, equipment, and your creations will be packaged up and posted back to you in time for Christmas! We will keep you fuelled through out the day with sweet treats, hot drinks and a lovely lunch!

About Katie Almond

Each piece of my work is a canvas for decoration and collage as I combine drawings with found, vintage ephemera. I am inspired by nostalgia, paper ephemera, vintage textiles and a love of drawing. I have always been fascinated by objects that have a history.

Nostalgic themes that I constantly revisit in my work are afternoon tea, the seaside, gardening, and my love of traditional blue and white pottery.

The porcelain pieces I create are unique, one-offs produced using a variety of slip casting and hand-building techniques. All incorporate my own drawings with found nostalgic imagery by using both hand painting and transfers, and many have the added opulence of gold luster.

Since setting up my studio in 2009 I have exhibited throughout the UK and my work has been featured in magazines, such as Period Living, Essential Living and Homes & Antiques.
