Ceramics exploration

I've started a ceramics course at Maze studios and am excited about the possibilities of what I can explore on the course. There are a couple of things I'm interested in - decals, painting with slip, working with porcelain and building moulds. We did painting with slip on my first evening there, which was great. So much to do and so little time before baby comes! Everyone there was really friendly, and the tutors were helpful in sharing tips and techniques. I think I'm going to love every minute of being in that studio!
The picture on the left shows how to paint with thick slip to make sea urchins - I'd love to try this out.
