About the Event

Pottery Taster sessions

- Speed dating clay!

Wanted to try a pottery class but just are not quite sure if it's throwing you're after, or hand building, or whether you want a one time workshop or a beginner's class or maybe there is just to many options of where to start :) 

Our ceramic taster session is aimed for you to come, have fun and have a go at each different part of ceramics - you will throw a bowl on the wheel (or two) you will handbuild your very own mug with a handle and paint your  own vase.

Throwing - You will wedge clay, learn how to centre on the wheel, learn to throw straight walls (cylinders) and how to turn these into bowls. You will throw your very own bowls- You will pick your two favourite thrown pieces and these will be fired and glazed for you. 

Hand building - You will slab build your very own mug, learning how to roll out clay properly, work with textures and moulds to make a mug that is truly perfect for you. You will also learn how to attach a handle. 

Painting - You will get to have play with our wide range of oxides, ceramic paints and magical glazes on a premade vase hand made by Emily. 

Over this 4 hour workshop you will get a real feel for ceramics, find out what you enjoy doing and most inportantly make some really cool peaces of work. Your work will be fired and glazed for you and ready to collect within two weeks of the workshop. You will have 1 x painted vase, 2 x thrown pieces, 1x  hand built mug. The thrown pieces and mug you make on the day will be dipped in a clear glaze leaving your work a lovely cream colour. 

There will be no more than 9  in this class so we can keep you in groups of 3 so everyone gets one on one time - the wheel will take up more teacher time so the groups need to be kept small so everyone had equal time.  

We will provide hot & cold drinks a selection of yummy cakes and fruits to keep you going through this fab 4 hours - we also have a cosy seating area where you can take a break.
