To love is to give to another, and what better way to give than spooning: the traditional Welsh, 17th century craft of Lovespoons. They’re wooden spoons made with skill and love, and given to your squeeze. This class is a modern take on the custom. We’ll use porcelain clay instead, and make 2 spoons: 1 for you to keep and 1 to give to a loved one.
The basics of modelling clay, how it reacts to you, and how it might suit the person you’re making it for. We’ll pay attention to our hearts as we make, because the feelings generated will be revealed as you pinch, squeeze and imprint the clay. For inspiration throughout the class we’ll share images of different types of spoons and explore the type of love they convey.
After the class, Angie will dry and fire your spoons and return them 3 weeks later to Cowbell 808, for you to pick up. We’ll let you know by email when they’re ready.
I’m Angie. I’m good at making things with clay and get such a thrill out of teaching. Every class brings an exotic mix of shapes and forms, anything goes. By day, I work in advertising and by night and early morning you’ll find me potting in our backyard studio. You can see some of my work at Ode Ceramics. I also teach the Meditate on a Pinch Cup and Make your Alter Ego classes with Laneway Learning.
