Rebecca has teamed up with Tory Bush Cottages in County Down, to give you the unique opportunity to create your own bone china bottle in the most idyllic setting. Tory Bush Cottages is situated in the foothills of the Mourne Mountains and the views are truly breathtaking, the perfect setting for our slip casting workshops.

The workshops run from 10am - 4pm with breaks for a tasty home cooked lunch and freshly baked scones, cake and tea throughout the day. Rebecca will guide you through the slip casting process, where you will each make your own functional bottle using fine bone china.

The bottles remain in the moulds for a couple of hours, so while we are waiting you will have the opportunity to create a beautiful ceramic tile using a printing technique with under glazes and plaster. Why not use the stunning surroundings as a source of inspiration for your work.

Or use your own art work as a source of inspiration.

Once the bottles are removed from the moulds they are now ready to be decorated using under glazes, this is your chance to really make your bottle unique!

Rebecca will then take your bottles and tiles off to the studio to be fired and glazed and fired again ready to be delivered in a couple of weeks. The bottles can be used either as a functional flower vase, or milk jug or a lovely piece to remember your weekend at the Mournes!
