BUTTONS AND BROOCHES WITH SARAH BURTON
13th October - 1:30pm to 3:30pm
Design, make and decorate up to 6 ceramic buttons/brooches. Suitable for beginner and experienced potters, join local studio potter Sarah Burton in a relaxed and creative atmosphere to make your own design of ceramic buttons and brooches. Sarah will show you how to make a variety of different shapes of buttons and brooches using a series of cutters and templates. You can decorate your creations with different textures and paint them with underglazes on the day. Your buttons/brooches will then be glazed with a transparent glaze and fired for you ready to collect from the Focus gallery a few weeks later. Bring with you any design ideas you may have – do you have a knitted cardigan that needs those special buttons or a jacket that would look great with a unique brooch? Alternatively get ideas on the day from the ‘Bits and Bobs Box’ that Sarah will bring along to inspire your creativity.
