All abilities welcome. The classes explore a range of traditional skills such as coiling, pinching and slab building to create fun, imaginative projects from building teapots to intricate lanterns. Participants can give their own imaginative twist to useful, functional items with all the necessary technical advice along the way. Once kiln ready I can bring them back to my studio and fire and glaze as required.
Each participant should come away with a finished piece of greenware pottery ready for drying and firing. Participants will finish the course with a basic understanding of the processes and techniques involved in creating functional ceramics, confidence in their own abilities to handle clay competently and a sense having been inspired to create more.
£75 including a delicious lunch and refreshments
