Jesmonite Plant Pot Workshop at Kirkstall Forge
Adults only
Event organiser:
Darn It! Workshops

Create your own miniature plant pots with artist and maker Kim Searle using a variety of geometric and recycled moulds. Jesmonite was named material of the year 2017, have a go and see why! It's a versatile material that will create a different pot every time - you'll learn how to weigh it, mix it, add colours and textural effects to create a pot unique to you. Pots can be made with pale pastels or vibrant colours, block colours or fantastic marbled effects. You will get to try a type of Jesmonite that will set by the end of the session as well as another type that will set the next day and has a much more organic look. There will be a variety of plant cuttings that you can add to your new set pots!

Cost: £25 per person.

This workshop will take place in Butlers at Kirkstall Forge. There's a train station on site and Kirkstall Forge wants to encourage sustainability, but if you'd like a parking space let me know and we can get one arranged.

Course conditions:

The workshop needs minimum numbers to run. In the unlikely event it doesn't meet this the workshop will be cancelled. Your booking is secured by payment and if you choose to cancel you get a refund up to 2 days before the event however after that no refund can be given.

There will be hand sanitiser available, social distancing in place and spaces will be limited. While masks are not a legal requirement, I would advise wearing them when moving around the space to protect and respect others- when mixing jesmonite pre pandemic I would provide masks too. If you feel unwell, have symptoms of covid or have been in contact with anyone who has please let me know so you can be moved onto a future session. If we go into another lockdown this workshop will be postponed until a safe date.
