Sophie Hamilton demonstrated her techniques of surface decoration on a layer of raw glaze.  There was an opportunity to practise her methods after the demonstration.  Ready raw glazed dishes were provided.  The completed dish had to be reduction fired to achieve similar results to Sophie’s and Andrew was willing to do this for you.
