FOOD PLATES is a playfull workshop were you will be able to celebrate food and tableware at the same time. You will be making your own ceramic plates, collaging images and shapes of food on to the top surface of the plates.
With a variety of coloured clay you can create shapes of your favourite food, by simply pressing them into the slab of clay. This results into a humorous and abstract version of your meal, entertaining guests at future dinner parties.
