This ‘Making Marks’ one-day workshop took place on 3 June and was facilitated by well-known ceramicist Ashleigh Christellis and Kate Shand, a community art counsellor with years of experience working in clay. We spent a sunny warm Saturday in what was once Lefika’s ceramic studio moulded clay plates and decorated them. We pressed lace, we scratched and sgraffitoed, we traced, we painted, we wiped away, we wrote, we created clay reliefs, we carved. The kiln worked after many years of sitting dormant and what a relief when the plates came out perfectly fired and very beautiful.
