BOOKINGPlease CONTACT US if you have any further questions or to reserve your place.

ACTIVITY: Mark will introduce and guide you through the traditional techniques of slip decoration, demonstrating his own very contemporary style and using his own innovative design of trailers.  You can see Mark’s introduction to using his slip trailer here.

What is provided:  As well as the necessary slips and trailers and his expert guidance, Mark will provide unfired tiles in perfect condition so that you can practise the slip-trailing techniques.  Mark will also have a number of cups and bowls available for you to purchase for a modest price so that you can scale up your practice and learn to use the trailers on a 3 dimensional form.

NB Mark’s slips need to be fired to a different temperature from our standard materials so in this case you may either choose to take your unfired pots away in the raw state if you have access to your own kiln and glazes if you wish or, for a modest extra charge, Mark will take the pots back with him to glaze and fire in order to ensure that colours come true to his standard.  He will then return the pots back to Seymour Road Studios Pottery so that you can collect your finished pots at a date to be arranged with Fran.
Please note: Mark will also have trailers, slip and some of his own gorgeous pots available for you to buy – come prepared!
