Love Walk residents recently visited the Garden Museum, near Lambeth Palace, for the first of a series of 3 clay workshops run by ceramic artist, Katie Spragg.
The theme of the workshop is to make things in clay connected to eating and drinking. During the first session, the group learned how to make and paint a bowl at a potters wheel, and made a toast rack of their own designs which were then painted. Once these have been fired ready for the next session, residents will be adding additional layers of colour and effect by applying metal oxides, before learning how to glaze their creations.
The workshops take place in the garden museum’s new purpose-built extension which is a fantastic light filled space, often used for adult education. Residents spent the afternoon looking around the museum and learning about garden design and the history of the site and the museum. A great day out, and everyone is already looking forward to the next session!
