If you’re in the UK and would like to learn how to make ceramic beads, I will be running a ceramic bead making class again at the Flame Off in Uttoxeter. The full day class is held on the 1st June, with taster sessions on the 2nd & 3rd.
Main Class Thursday
This full day class will have a seashore theme.
In the first part of the class, you will begin by learning how to make ceramic beads, pendants and cabochons, learn the basic techniques, and progress to stamping, carving and sculpting clay to add more detail. You will have plenty of opportunity to develop your own ideas. We’ll hopefully have time to make all of the designs shown here.
After lunch, (you will need to bring a packed lunch for yourself) the second part of the class will focus on glazing and decoration to bring your designs to life with colour.
This class is suitable for all from beginners to those with some experience. Your beads will need to be fired twice, so will be forwarded to you 7-10 days after the class.
The cost for the full day class is £85 including all materials and firings.
Taster classes Friday & Saturday
This short class will give you a taster of creating ceramic beads. You will be shown some basic techniques to create beads, pendants or cabochons with a floral theme, or get creative and follow your own ideas using the techniques shown.
Your beads will need to be fired twice, so will be glazed in a single colour and forwarded to you 7-10 days after the class. Alternatively, if you’d like to decorate them yourself, you can book a place on the Saturday class to complete your designs.
The cost for the taster class is £45 including all materials and firing.
Hope to see you there! 🙂
