Tarka Pottery

Self Portrait in Clay Fri 29 May 10am - 12noon

From May 29, 2020 10:00 am until 12:00 pm

Great fun to create a face in clay using a slab of clay either as a tile or mask.

We'll show you how to create fantastic features such as eyes, lips and noses to really bring your face to life.  You can make it realistic or completely cartoon like with tongue, teeth and spiky hair.  Add glasses if you'd like!

We always have ideas of finished projects to get you started, but love to see sketches or photos of ideas you'd like to try. 

This workshop lasts 2 hours. 

We have workshops every week during school holidays in 2020 and the studio is open Tuesday - Saturday. Did you know we can offer this project as a party or to a group another time if you can’t make the advertised workshop? Contact us to arrange a better date.
