Studio visit to RAMP (Roop and Al Make Pots)
Friday 26th April. 10.30 am for 11.00 am start to 4pm approx.
Dunsmore Business Units, Dunsmore, Silverton, Devon. EX5 4DU

After previously working from studios in Deptford and then Silverton Roop and Allice have recently moved to their large, purpose built and fully equipped new studio in the small country trading estate at Dunsmore nearby. They work mainly in porcelain and also earthenware producing a range of beautifully decorated domestic ware and also some very interesting and more abstract sculptural work. Roop enjoys the making process both on the wheel and hand building to produce clean domestic forms which provide a good surface for Alice to decorate. Alice uses a variety of coloured slips onto green ware and is inspired by shapes, forms and colours in the natural world which she translates into bold abstract designs.
During the day they will talk about and illustrate their work and inspirations, Roop will demonstrate his making techniques and Alice will show us her decoration methods We will also have a chance to decorate a tile ourselves.
Cost: £20 for members and £25 for up to one non-member guest.
