Urban Ceramics

In yesterday’s ceramics workshop, we had lots of new members! This is great news for the map that we are putting together of the area!  It will be painted onto a 5×5′ board, with details added using tissue paper and collage, then the buildings will be placed onto the map, creating an interactive installation.  We are making small objects/landmarks of the Inverclyde area, to add to the map.
This was Lily’s first time using ceramics and made an impressive start with Gourock’s Wee Annie statue, originally by artist Angela Hunter.  Hopefully, this piece will be dry enough for Lily to paint onto next week!
Grace made a great start to her Cloch Lighthouse, with the brilliant added feature of the rocks that lead from the lighthouse down to the water.
We had one attendee, come along with her two grandchildren who got stuck right in and began making their own bowls and a miniature of the Lyle Hill memorial of the Lorraine Cross, with combined anchor.
We also have another attendee starting on a landmark buoy that sits on the Greenock Esplanade.
This workshop welcomes new members and is open to all ages and abilities, with children under 12 to be accompanied by an adult.
Come on the day to the Broomhill Art Flat (to gain entry, press number “12” on the keypad to be buzzed into Broomhill Court),
