Botanical Ceramics & Sculpture with Zoe Clare, Phoenix Brighton



Learn how to translate botanical forms into a decorative ceramic piece or sculpture.

Working with clay, you will learn how to translate botanical forms into a decorative ceramic piece or sculpture. You will learn how to handle clay and use it to reflect nature in an expressive way. Different types of flora such as pine cones or tulips will be used as inspiration. This is not a figurative course, instead you will be encouraged to use your imagination to create something abstract yet inspired by nature.

Being open to creativity is all you need as this course will provide you with the ability to express yourself and imaginatively experiment with clay. By the end of the course you will take home your unique creative ceramic piece or sculpture for display.

This course is suitable for all levels including beginners.

Most materials will be provided but please bring the following: plastic apron, sketchbook, pens and pencils, your favourite flowers/plants.

Costs: £140
Days: Monday 20 - Friday 24 August
Times: 9:30am - 1:30pm
Room: White
Maximum: 10

Zoe Clare, an emerging artist, creates porcelain sculptures by commission, has work in private collections around the globe, exhibits internationally and has a B.A Hons in Ceramic Design from Central Saint Martins. Her work expresses botanical life form and how nature reflects human tendencies in an abstract way.
