This is the Mini version of the full day workshop.
I will cover the basic techniques used to hand build, including pinching, coiling and working with slabs, and you will make your very own wares.
As this is a mini session we will choose one making method to make your very own mug, jug, vase or platter. I have plenty of samples and a catalogue of inspirational ideas to help you.
You will receive
-Tuition and demonstrations.
-Your own stoneware clay.
-The use of my studio and equipment.
-Tools and textures to experiment with.
-Decorating slips, underglaze and a choice of glaze.
-Glazing and firing service
By the end of the session
You will have learnt hand building techniques and will have produced 1- 2 small pieces or 1 larger piece.
There is an option to add some colour to your work using underglazes / decorating slips. Alternatively You can choose a glaze from my collection, or a clear glaze to enhance your decorated pieces. I will then glaze and fire your work for you. Each piece is bisque fired in my kiln, glazed by me and fired again, to a temperature of around 1220 degrees centigrade.
Once your work is ready, ( 2-3 weeks) i will contact you and we can arrange collection from my studio.
