Adult Workshop: Rainbow Plate using the banding technique, 5th May 2016


Come and learn the art of banding!  Banding is pottery painting  technique that can be used to paint circular stripes or rims on round shapes like plates, mugs etc. A banding wheel is used which is a hand operated round turntable and after perfecting this technique you will be able to achieve perfect rims or circular stripes.  

This workshop will start with a demonstration of this technique before you take to the wheel yourselves to create a beautifully banded plate. You don’t have to produce a rainbow plate if you would prefer to use different colours. You will then have the opportunity to write on the plate – this is optional.

What are you waiting for? Book your place now!  All materials are provided and your plate will be ready to collect a week later after we have glazed and fired it.
