About the workshop
An introductory session, suitable for complete beginners or those who are wanting to refresh their skills. The day will introduce students to a number of different clays, their suitability for different techniques, firing ranges and workability. Students will complete projects in pinching, slab building, coiling and throwing, with the opportunity to explore surface decoration using coloured slips. This is a very informative workshop with a practical base, which is also fun. Small groups and two tutors enables students get the help and attention they need to be able to successfully complete all the projects. You will be surprised by the amount covered and what you are able to achieve in just a day.
Places are limited so early booking is essential. Feedback on this course is excellent and many students return to continue working on their own projects once they have mastered the basics.
Duration: 10am – 4pm

What people had told us about this course:
I attended this course with my daughter a couple of weeks ago. I would thoroughly recommend it as a really good fun experience. With the advantage of bringing home a piece of your own work. It introduces you to many new skills.
The course tutors were excellent patient and very attentive
We went as a group of 6 but got so much help and assistance we all had a fabulous time. It was great to try so many techniques without feeling rushed and the end results were carefully wrapped and touchingly returned to us to our delight! Thank you both.
Fantastic all day course
Lovely studio space
I would go again for more
