1 Day Course: Introduction to Nerikomi Ceramics

Thursday 26 March 2020
10.30am – 4.30pm

Perfect for those with some previous experience of working with clay, this one-day course will focus on the Japanese technique of nerikomi. Created through the combination of coloured clays, nerikomi ceramics are distinct patterned pieces. Over the duration of the day, participants will learn how to use stains to create their own coloured clays, and use traditional nerikomi pattern designs to produce functional ceramic tableware.

Mizuyo Yamashita will lead this course. Mizuyo is a Japanese ceramicist based in Hackney. She makes tableware and home décor objects inspired by everything from ancient artefacts to modern everyday objects. She is interested in texture and pattern-making in pottery. Read more.
