 COLOUR FILLS WORKSHOP - November 14th 2015

The ICON Ceramics and Glass Group Committee is pleased to announce that booking is now open for the Colour Fills Workshop on the 14th November 2015 to be held at the Wiltshire and Swindon Heritage Centre.


     The workshop is aimed at ceramic restorer/conservators who are new to this conservation technique or who would like to update their skills. Participants will learn how to prepare and work with the epoxy resin: this will include colour matching and achieving different surface finishes to restore a variety of ceramic bodies. Later on the day, participants will be introduced to the art of successfully polishing previously prepared fills to achieve the mirror-like finish ceramic objects are often known for. With this workshop participants will obtain a strong ground and good practice from which they can develop their colour-filling technique further.


The workshop tutor is Beky Davies ACR

Workshop Fees:

  • Member - £140
  • Non Member - £225

For further details and to book your place please see our Eventbrite site: Colour Fills Workshop

We look forward to seeing you!
