Chester Deva Rotarians and their guests assembled at Charly’s Ceramics in Ellesmere Port for a social evening with a difference.

On arrival, we were given a short explanation on how we could paint any of the ceramic items on display, with a few professional tips to make that easier.

After each of us had selected a bisque item of pottery to paint from the shelves, we sat at tables to paint our own items in a personal design.

Whilst some struggled for inspiration, others quickly showed their artistic skills surprising many there.

However the big surprise will come later , when the items are sent to be glazed and fired in a kiln.

Why, because the painted colours will dramatically change in the heat and hopefully for the better. This will be when we find whether we have painted a masterpiece Ceramic ornament worthy of being sold on e-bay or just enjoyed a few hours of social painting or both!
