Gillian Arnold Ceramics and Jewellery Workshops
In this eclectic mix workshop you will be introduced to the ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi, repairing broken pottery with gold seams. You will also compose and design contemporary imagery to existing vintage ceramics, upcycling the old with your unique stamp! These two techniques can then be used in tandem to make unique work. You will also design, print and make your own anodised jewellery pieces to enjoy wearing on a night out! Set in our beautiful industrial modern and botanically infused shops in the hearts of Darlington and Bishop Auckland. Gillian has been running professional workshops across the country for over 6 years, with a wealth of experience under her belt you will be in great hands. Learn from surface pattern and product designer Gillian Arnold who runs a successful design business selling her work nationally and internationally.
What does the course cover?
You will leave at the end of the day with an eclectic mix of personal and unique products and equipped with multiple new techniques to apply in future creative endeavours.
All the vintage crockery and materials will be provided, although if you have cherished broken crockery you want to mend with gold seams then bring them along. So all you need to bring is a can-do attitude (mandatory.)
