An intensive group class that will delve into colouring clay with insights into Alice’s tonal blending technique. You will make 5 different shades from 1 base colour and one blend of 6 colours which shifts from 1 tone to another. At the end of the class you will have 11 different coloured test tiles and the ability to make a countless spectrum of colours.

Alice will also cover the reclaiming colouring clay technique and will talk about the difference between stains and oxides. Alice will discuss test tiles and the importance of shape, size and form. Further, she will discuss how and where she finds colour inspiration and how to use this in your surroundings.
