Throw/Hand Build/Glaze 2 Days

For Individual, couples or small groups

Two whole days in the pottery studio, learning or practicing clay techniques.  We offer a flexible, enjoyable schedule to build your confidence with clay.

Day 1: spend as long as you like on a potter’s wheel, learning or improving throwing skills. You’ll make several cylinders and bowl shapes ready to trim on day 2.  A great opportunity to make your own mug as we’ll show you how to add a handle.

Day 2:   If you want to throw pots on the wheel again you’ll be very welcome to continue.  Otherwise you can choose a couple of hand building technique such as coiling, pinch pots or making textured slabs of clay into a bowl or planter.  You’ll also get to try using coloured slips to create patterns on one of your pots.

Try techniques, textures and experimenting with plenty of help and advice along the way.

You get to decorate/glaze two of your creations to keep.  Extra pots can be glazed and fired for an additional charge.

Also offered as a one day session, Tuesday – Saturday most weeks.
