A Taste of Art: Terracotta Gingerbread Houses

With all materials included and each workshop suitable for beginners, our Wednesday morning Taste Of... sessions give the perfect introduction to a range of artistic styles and techniques.

Within this workshop, you will work on your very own miniature house in the traditional style of a festive gingerbread house. You will be guided through the process of slab rolling, hand building, joining together using slip and using different methods of decoration. Finishing techniques will be demonstrated and the chance to decorate your house using a selection of our under glazes and coloured slips. Place fairy lights inside your finsihed house to create a beautiful lantern.

Suitable For: All abilities.

'Taste of Art' workshops are creative sessions that are friendly, informal and good fun and aim to provide an introduction to a technique or art form. Lasting an hour and a half they are run by qualified tutors and artists and aim to give you an insight into a craft and inspire you to do more.

You don't have to be a creative person to take part as the sessions are aimed at all levels and the focus is on experimentation. Most of our sessions use materials and equipment that are accessible and low cost and we always try to provide ceramic activities that utilise our kiln.

'Taste Of Art' sessions will provide you with an opportunity to make new friends and meet up with other budding creatives.

'Taste of Art' sessions run during the school term and a detailed programme is released on this website.

Please bring an apron.
