Katharine Morling Workshop

Sketches into Hand-building - November 7-9, 2014

From Sketches to Slabs - with Katharine Morling

Participants will be invited to create their own unique work of art over a three day workshop with Katharine. Starting with quick drawings using ink and bleach to sketch out ideas exploring your inspiration, you are encouraged to create a piece reflective of yourself. Katharine's work is inspired by her own personal narrative, so each person's work will be unique and personal to them. On the first morning you will be coming up with initial designs of what you want to create and later start working in clay and finalizing your designs. Katharine will be demonstrating different techniques such as hand building and slab building, tailoring these to your individual designs. She will be on hand to give expert advice and tips and tricks of working with clay.

As you see your piece creation come together, Katharine will be demonstrate how she uses underglazes within her work, providing examples. You will have the opportunity to experiment with oxides and stains if it fits in your design.

Class size 16. Particpants will be hand-building and learning to use porcelain in this workshop.

Katharine Morling Artist Bio

Katharine Morling is an award-winning artist working in the medium of ceramics. She set up her studio in 2003 and has since gained international acclaim for her work. After graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2009, she was awarded first prize at the 2010 World Crafts Council Triennial in Belgium. Morling also represented the UK at the 2010 European Ceramic Context in Denmark. For COLLECT 2011, she showed a new installation Out of the House in the Project Space of the Saatchi Gallery. Other projects include created a large wall mounted installation for the new children's ward commissioned by the Royal London Hospital through Vital Arts and a contemporary dance piece at the Royal Opera House inspired by her work.

As part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad, Morling was invited to create an artist's response to the Staffordshire Hoard. Morling designed 10 large ceramic sculptures of mythological godlike creatures, that represent the deities that the Anglo Saxons might have worshiped. 'Morling and the Hoard' is now on permanent display alongside the Staffordshire Hoard at the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent. Morling is represented by Long & Ryle, London and the Balman Gallery.


Katharine Morling Artist Statement

My work can be described as 3 dimensional drawings, in the medium of ceramics, primarily using porcelain with black stain. Each piece, on the surface, an inanimate object, has been given layers of emotion and embedded with stories, which are open for interpretation in the viewer's mind.
