Ceramics Workshop, Black Swan Arts in Frome
There will be a ceramics workshop with Jane Johnson at Frome's Black Swan Arts on Thursday, March 7 at 6pm.
This SEED talk see Jane guide people through her inspiration, experience and the techniques used to create her works.
Jane says; "I have a fascination with ancient things that stems from my childhood.
"I was brought up in the Devonshire countryside, surrounded by a softly folded landscape, abundant and bountiful flora, veteran trees, blunted cob farmhouses with thatched roofs and farmers who spoke using old words in strong local dialect.
"The house I was brought up in was filled with antiques and home made things and from an early age I learned to recognise the importance and worth of unconventional or peculiar qualities embedded in an object.
"I am interested in manipulating and challenging assumptions that may be made by the viewer.
Guests will then hand decorate their own ceramic love heart made from red earthenware clay with layered coloured slips, scraffitto and shabby chic decorating techniques which Jane will fire in her studio returning the finished article to SEED to be collected by its maker.
Tickets cost £15.
All SEED talks are held at the Black Swan Arts in Frome.
