Ceramic Art Special
Sunday 30th May
Taste + Create! Online Artistic Tea Blending (+ Clay Art) Masterclass
Tea blending and Ceramic art online workshop with A Little Cup Tea & Lily German - Tasting tea and sculpting it too!
About this Event:
*NOTE - Bookings end on Tuesday 25th May at 10am to allow time for postage of kit*
This online masterclass (held on zoom) will allow you to explore flavours and their influences on our bodies and minds, through creative responses using clay. Here you will consider movement, gestures and mark-making that relate to particular flavours, through sculptural experimentation.
How the session will run:
-We will look at a selection of 3 of A Little Cup’s tea blends, their stories and benefits. Each blend has a different quality, be it uplifting and energising, soothing or spicy and warming.
-We will start with a tasting of each blend and learn about the ingredients.
-You will then use these as inspiration for a drawing exercise to get your creative juices flowing, thinking about how your bodies and minds respond to different flavours or ingredients.
-These investigations into flavour will then take you into making with clay. Ceramic artist Lily German will guide you through some clay mark-making and sculptural exploration, considering different ways of transforming your drawings into 3-dimensional clay forms.
You will be sent a workshop kit in the post-
What will you get:
-3 tea bags of 'A Little Cup' blends
-Scroll of paper each to draw on
-A block of air-dry clay (approx 3.1kg)
*Please make sure to have any extra paper you want and any drawing materials handy (pens, pencils, crayons, pastels - colours are advised, but regular pencil or writing pens will work too!) - these won't be sent out. Also keep in mind to have a flat, washable surface ready that is suitable for clay work.*
Note that booking will end 5 days before the date of the workshop to allow time for postage of the kit.
