September 2018 Clay Day - ring bowls!
Date and Time
About this event
ABOUT THE DAY
Each day runs from 10am-4pm and our current venue is Greenside Community Centre, 24 Lilestone Street, Marylebone, London, NW8 8SR.
As part of the day, Jane Cox will demonstrate how to make ring bowls and also the technique for covering a small glass with a clay veneer.
KIT REQUIRED: In addition to the usual kit, Jane suggests the following depending on what you would like to make.
Mica powders/pan pastels
Previously made canes or veneers - or make one on the day
Clay to cover the outside Jane uses black, white or grey but the choice is yours
Fine texture for the underside of the bowl
A credit card or ruler to indent pattern on chrysanthemum canes
Translucent clay, particularly if covering a tea light
Knitting needle/smoothing tool/layout paper
Jane has also suggested a small glass jar in Lidl, 6.5x5cm which contained a little chocolate pud. We recommend you eat the pud first!
We usually have one or more demonstrations by volunteers from the group; we try to let you know in advance what these will be and whether you need to bring anything special
We are a very friendly group and people are usually willing to offer advice and guidance to beginners on an ad-hoc basis. However we often also run a short session for complete beginners, our "Nursery Group" - if you would like to be included in this please let us know as part of your booking.
You may take still photos (unobtrusively!!!) during the demos, but in fairness to our demonstrators, please do not video any of the demos. Please don't post your photos onto Facebook or other social media after the event.
SHOW & TELL TABLE
In addition we have a “Show-and-Tell” table at each Day. Members can use this to display and talk about a recent creation, or to ask for help in solving a problem. If you don't bring anything to show, you're quite likely to have your (polymer!) jewellery removed at the door by Carol!
Please be aware that pieces on the Show and Tell table WILL be photographed and posted on our website and facebook site.
Lastly, the table is called 'Show and Tell' for a reason - please be willing to answer questions abour your process and techniques - that's how everyone learns!
