Hand Painted Plates with Amy Isles Freeman

Create a beautiful hand painted wooden plate of your own.

In this one day workshop, Amy will guide you through the process of creating a beautiful hand painted wooden plate of your own.

You will work on a ‘naked’ wooden plate. The day begins with a tour of the house for inspiration, looking at colour and pattern, and the many examples of hand decorated ceramics. You will then spend some time doing drawing exercises, experimenting with mark making and thinking about colour and shape, line quality and texture.

The afternoon will be spent translating this preparatory work into a design for your plate. At the end of the workshop you will have created a something both beautiful and useful for your home, an heirloom, or a gift for somebody special.
