Make your own set of ceramic Christmas decorations.  
Starting with a slab of raw earthenware clay, you will firstly imprint with patterns from fabric and wallpaper of your choice. After cutting out a selection of different shapes, the pieces can be decorated with coloured oxides and underglazes.
These look lovely hung in the tree at Christmastime, or make a unique gift.
The decorations will be taken away to be fired and glazed (this is optional), and will be available to collect from Artisan Studio 7-10 days after the workshop. 
Delivery can be arranged at a small additional charge.

We will bring lots of foliage but it would be useful if you can bring anything interesting and unusual you can find just so we have a good variety to choose from.
Suggestions are:
herbs - rosemary, sage and bay are still around over the winter
pine cones and seed heads
cinnamon sticks etc.
We will provide Oasis, wires, ribbons and lace.
Please have a think about your colour scheme or theme.
Please bring a candle if you would like to use your wreath as a table decoration.
