Workshops // Coming up // Beginners Hand-Building Pottery course
14 January

Beginners Hand-Building Pottery course

Beginners / intermediate session in the pottery studio lead by me. We will work through techniques such as; pinch pot, coil pot, slab making. Decoration techniques such as, slip and glazing, burnishing etc. I will give a short demonstration on how to build using your chosen handbuilding technique each week. I will then hand over 500g of clay to you and your imagination. I will take you through the basic steps again as you work. You are able to keep all work which I will bisque fire - this will be available to either decorate (will require another firing in my kiln) or collect 2 weeks after your session. Once bisc fired you may return to glaze your item.

Students will be encourage to work at their own pace.


Equipment and tools will be provided. 


Clay will be provided to be purchased at the beginning of each session.

There are 2 of these courses running - one on Wednesday afternoons and one on Monday evenings.
