As part of their Arts Awards Explore, pupils from 9E have been learning about the pottery artist Clarice Cliff. Over the past few weeks, pupils have been finding out all about her work and looking at her unique art deco style designs. To consolidate their learning, 9E pupils visited Mudpie Creative Studios in Folkestone to paint a Clarice Cliff design on a ceramic plate.
During their 3 hour workshop, pupils watched a demonstration from the owner, drew on their chosen design and applied 3 coats of glaze to their plates. All pupils worked tremendously hard to complete their plates, so much so, milkshake and brownie time was well deserved by all. Next step, is for the plates to be fired. Check back here soon to see their completed plates.
