Porcelain jewellery workshops – over three Saturday mornings

A chance to make rings, pendants, brooches and badges.
Suitable for people with no or little experience of working with clay.

Helena Seget’s next workshop-series will centre on making jewellery from porcelain. The Newcastle-based artist admits that she is fascinated by porcelain – and wants to pass on her expertise and enthusiasm to others!
The three Saturday morning workshops in January (2012) will enable people to learn how to work with porcelain-clay, shape it, and fire it so that they come up with their own pieces. The sessions will all take place in Helena’s own studio – so the experience is as authentic as it gets.

A WORD ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS – Everything will kick off at 10 o’clock but I’ll be in the studio from 9:30 onwards, so if anyone arrives early they are welcome to share some refreshments with me.  If you’ve got a particular design in mind, an idea for a shape or if you have an object, which you would like to use to make an impression in soft clay, please bring them with you.  
There’s limited parking in the street in front of the studios, and a lot of parking spaces behind the studios, just off Foundry Lane.

To book a space, payment must be made in advance.
