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.
See: http://www.helenaseget.com <http://www.helenaseget.com>  or phone for details on 07961 178 468
