'Excellent set up and a very welcoming class.
I like the way we can develop our own ideas
and have as much input and advice as we
needed / wanted from the tutor.
Ceramic Taster Sessions
Never tried pottery? Would you like to have a go but feel nervous?
The most frequent thing that I hear from people when we talk about ceramics is that they would like to have a go, but they are worried because they are not artistic enough.
Well do not fear, I have created this one just for you...
The Ceramic Taster Sessions are a series of two lessons that will introduce you to ceramics and enable you to have a go at making your own pottery.
The first lesson will provide you with a basic understanding of the clay, glazing and firing process and you will have plenty of time to make your own pottery with an experienced ceramic artist on hand to provide demonstrations and guide you.
The second lesson will take place 2 -3 weeks later to allow your work time to dry out fully before the first bisque firing. During the second lesson you will surface decorate your pottery with glaze ready for the final glaze firing.
Your pottery will be available for collection a week after the second course.
Taster sessions cost £80pp in total for the 2 lessons. Materials and firings are included.
These make excellent presents and gift vouchers are dispatched when you book the course.
4 Week Beginners Throwing Course
Every month during term time we run four week throwing courses that are the perfect way to start your throwing journey. Each of these classes will give you in depth knowledge of how to master the basics of throwing on the wheel.
With expert, simple, step-by-step guidance we take the mystery out of how to centre, open and pull up the walls of your pots so that you have the technical skills to create a range of interesting forms. In your final week you will have the opportunity to add surface decoratation by glazing your art work.
With only two people on each course you get dedicated tuition, which helps you avoid so many of the mistakes that new potters so often make.
Courses cost £160pp. All materials and firings are included.
Can I bring a friend?
Yes! There are 2 fantastic Shimpo Wheels so you can have a joint throwing class with a friend. We often have seasonal offers for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Christmas etc. so keep you eye out!
With regards to hand building, the more the merrier, the classroom can accommodate up to 14 people or slightly smaller groups when social distance measures are in place.
