Ceramic masterclass with Kenji Uranishi

“That sense of flexibility can sometimes be difficult to communicate when you’re working with a material like porcelain, which is inherently strong. But to me the fragility of porcelain is appealing, and knowing that I’m working with such an unpredictable material to create something from what essentially starts as a block of clay. Flexibility and patience is key in this line of work.” – Kenji Uranishi

Together with artist Kenji Uranishi, you will see and experiment with the intricate method of rolling thin porcelain slabs, cutting 3D forms, and decorative techniques including using thin lines and inlay. He will also share a range of vital tips and preventative techniques that will ensure you have a successful firing outcome.

The masterclass will involve demonstrations and participation.
Workshop materials will be provided.
Suitable for students and adults aged 15 and above. Beginners to advanced.
