Become a Liker and Keep Up-Dated

PAINT your own Christmas decorations



Wow, what a KeepSake idea!



Imagine hanging from your Christmas Tree, decorations painted by your children, or the delight of a grandparent receiving one for their tree.  Very special indeed!


This workshop is for 6-8 painters, kids or adults, of any age.  Once your shapes are painted, using specially formulated non-toxic underglazes, they are left with me for a week and during that time I will glaze and kiln fire them so when they are collected, the decorations will be very shiny, smooth to touch and fade resistant.  And treated carefully, they will last for years and years!

Cost $30 includes 2 shapes of your choice.  More shapes may be purchased for $5 each.
Decorations after firing.

PAINT ceramics of your choice, class

How This Class Works.
Clean your Bisqued (clay that has been fired once) with a damp sponge to remove any dust. You can draw a design on them if you like but don't worry as the pencil will burn off in the kiln process. Then using the water based special formulated "Underglazes" paint your ceramic bowl.  Once finished, you leave your designer bowl with me.
After a couple of days, allowing for your painted ceramics to thoroughly dry, I will give it two coats of a clear glaze which is crushed glass suspended in water.  This will give your creations that shiny smooth finish after it comes out of the kiln from its second firing and make the colours really vibrant!

Once your ceramic is fired, and this process may take a week or two, I will be in touch and let you know if it has survived, because (rarely) sometimes things break in the kiln, and arrange for your Ceramic Creations to be collected, either from my studio or at my stall at the Fullarton market, held once a month.
