Create your own series of porcelain pieces by choosing and applying vintage botanical decals. Carefully cut around the decal, dampen and smooth onto the porcelain plates. You can add some line drawing/text to your composition. Add lustre to the edge of the plates which can be fired at the same time as the decals.
When the plates are fired in a kiln, the decals and line work are melted into the glaze on the porcelain plates.
In this 3 hour workshop, you will create a small group of porcelain plates which will be fired and ready for collection the next day.
Agave Print Workshop is located in an amazing 1970s A-frame at Trentham, a small town 97km north-west of Melbourne. Price includes GST.
