This workshop is designed as a one off session, or as a foundation to attend one of my weekly sessions.
I will show you the basic techniques used to hand build, including pinching, coiling and working with slabs, and you will make your very own wares.
You will receive
-Tuition, demonstrations and handouts.
-Your own stoneware clay.
-The use of my studio and equipment.
-Tools and textures to experiment with.
-Handouts for each technique.
-Decorating slips, underglaze and a choice of glaze.
-Glazing and firing service
-The option to have a go on the potters wheel.
You can choose what to make, I have plenty of samples and a catalogue of inspirational ideas to help you to make your very own functional wares.
By the end of the session
-You will have learnt hand building techniques.
-You will have produced up to 3 small pieces or up to 2 large pieces.
I have a wheel, and you are welcome to have a go, time permitting.
You can make more pieces, but you will be charged extra to cover materials and firing costs. This cost is worked out by weight and/or size. This charge also includes any pots you make on the wheel and want to keep.
You can choose a glaze from my collection. Once your work has dried I will fire your pieces in my kiln. I will then glaze your work for you and fire it again to a mid stoneware temperature.
I offer an additional glazing session where you can come back and glaze your own work. You will have a wider choice of glaze colours to choose from, and can be more creative in your application. The cost of this session is £25 per person and lasts up to 2 hours.
Once your work is ready ( 2-3 weeks), I will contact you and we can arrange collection from my studio, or I can arrange postal delivery, this will have an additional charge.
*A minimum of two people are required to run this workshop.
