To celebrate the opening of Gatakers Creative Space, JamFactory is offering a Clay Colouring and Hand-forming Workshop.

As part of the current touring show JamFactory ICON, Angela Valamanesh: About being here exhibition, JamFactory is offering a Clay Colouring and Hand-forming Workshop.  

Angela Valamanesh worked with JamFactory’s Ceramic Studio to produce a set of three artworks. Three JamFactory Ceramics Studio Associates worked on one piece each, developing an understanding of Angela’s techniques to enable them to recreate the pieces under her guidance.  

Led by a Xanthe Murphy, this clay-colouring and hand forming workshop teaches techniques employed by Angela Valamanesh such as dying clay with stains and oxides and a demonstration of the ‘scratch-back’ technique utilised in many of her objects. Participants create a unique piece that is dyed and formed by hand.
