In this clay workshop, you will learn to handbuild a tea cup from white porcelain clay and learn to put a little animal friend inside. Porcelain is known for its strength and beauty, which is why it is perfect for tea cups. After building, you will book a second session to come back and paint it with underglaze. We will fire it in our kiln once more before you take it home.

As you would expect, it is really hard to know exactly how much time you will need. Every artist is different and often you may want to practice a bit before making your final piece.
|Sessions Required||2 or more. You will need to attend the studio for at least 1 building session and 1 glazing session as we will need to fire the clay before you can glaze.|
