Hand build and sculpt your own unique hare with Gill Oakley of Stone Hens Ceramics.
During this one-day course you will be shown how to use a variety of hand building techniques to create your own three-dimensional hare from stoneware clay. At the end of the day you can choose whether to take the hare home or leave it with Gill to take back to her studio to be glazed and fired to produce a matt finished, durable piece – a fantastic and completely unique addition to your house or garden.
All materials will be provided on the day, but an apron or shirt that you don’t mind getting dirty is recommended. Gill’s finishing process, which is offered at no additional charge, will take up to one month. The finished hares may be collected from Gill’s studio in Cardiff, the Ash Farm Studio, or delivered at additional cost.
No prior experience is necessary for this workshop.
Gill Oakley has spent a lifetime playing with clay since becoming hooked in her teens. Using found objects, home-made stamps and tools to create surface texture, she has developed ranges of buttons, brooches, tea-light holders, vases and seasonal decorations which have been sold at Liberty and Foss Fine Art in London, Y Galeri, Llantrisant Gallery and Design by Glass. Gill also exhibits at Wonderwool, Craft in the Bay Christmas Show, and Made by Hand, Wales, and has been featured in British Fibre Art Magazine, House and Garden, and Simply Knitting among other publications.
