Draw, design and create a pot based on ceramicist Grayson Perry: In this workshop you will explore art and text combined, using Grayson Perry’s artwork as inspiration. Creating unique designs which tell the viewer something about you as an artist, reflecting your points of views, memories, issues in society, family etc.
Over the past three weeks we have been exploring art and text combined, to create fun designs which reflect our interests and points of view. This was such an engaging workshop, creating great discussion around Grayson’s Perry’s work, which inspired some fun and creative ideas.
After looking and discussing his work, the children designed their very own pot, hand drawing some of their own personal narrative designs and adding meaningful text. These designs helped to inform their design decisions when they came to decorating their pots.
The children took great care when constructing and moulding their mod-roc pots, some of them added handles which looked fantastic. Using their original design ideas for inspiration, the children decorated their pots. Some children made alterations along the way, whilst others recreated their orignal design idea.
