Craft Sunday: Ceramic Wall Hanging Planters with Art Rox in a Box


Working from her little yellow garden studio in Aberdeenshire, Leonie Cowie of Art Rox in a Box is a self-taught potter who creates unique hand-built ceramics. Well known for her face pot planters which are inspired by women from different cultures and backgrounds, she is also influenced by life experiences and her surroundings. Leonie loves to work with all types of clay, even producing her own earthenware from local mud that she harvests and processes at home. 

Join Leonie for an afternoon of ceramics where you’ll learn how to make your own wall hanging planter. Using stoneware clay and colourful ceramic decals, Leonie will guide you through the process of hand building your planter, before taking it back to her studio to fire. Your pieces will then be ready to collect from DCA from Mon 8 August, ready to be filled with your favourite plant and hung indoors or out.

As always we'll have plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits to help fuel your making during this fun afternoon of crafting.
