In this workshop you will create your own Tapas Bowl using clay.
What does the course cover?
Over the session we will be showing you how to assemble and decorate your very own set of three bowls. With a professional pottery tutor on hand to guide you through the session you will learn how to use moulds, slab building and the various functional aspects of a Tapas bowl.
You will get to choose patterns from our large range of wooden and clay stampers to make the jug in your own style.
Bowls will be taken back to Muddy Fingers HQ and dried then bisque fired, we will then glaze them in a colour of your choice and fire them again. The jugs are made from stoneware clay so will be unglazed on the base and occasionally around the underside of the rim (depends on fit). Glaze colours may not be exactly as they are on our testers and therefore final colours cannot be guaranteed.
