Course Description

Learn to apply your painting skills to white china or refine your technique with the Brock House Porcelain Painters. We use powdered mineral colours which are ground into an oil base and then applied to china which is fired in the Brock House kiln. Our painters produce quality pieces for their own pleasure and for sale at Society fundraisers. Supplies are available to get you started and we can recommend sources for your specific needs. We take pleasure in helping each other and guiding beginners. Come and enjoy a lovely art form with experienced peers!
