Description

DESCRIPTION

This fantastic beginners handbuilding course on 5 consecutive Wednesday evenings teaches you the main handbuilding tecniques and how to glaze.

It covers pinching pots, coiling and working with slabs to make decorative tiles and either a lidded box or a vase. All your work is fired and the last session is used to glaze everything you have made. We have a number of project cards for reference which vary in ability level to inspire you as well as reference books and magazines. The tutor guides you through every step of the process encouraging and suggesting ways of improving your work. Wednesday evenings are relaxed and fun and we normally have a sneaky glass of wine to help the evening along! The space is occupied by both beginners and experienced potters so it's a great way to learn getting advice from both the tutor and past students who have continued with their practice.

All your materials and firings are included in the cost. We supply all equipment and aprons. All you need to do is turn up!

Week 1: Pinch pots using a grogged pink clay

Week 2: Coild pots using a grogged pink clay

Week 3: Decorative tiles using a grogged pink clay and a lightly grogged white clay

Week 4: Building with slabs using a lightly grogged white clay

Week 5: Glaze all your work. Ready to collect 2 weeks later

Dates are: Wednesday January 16th, 23rd, 30th, February 6th & 13th 7-9.15pm (If you can't make one of the sessions we are happy to do a catch-up class for an admin fee of £20).

Cost: £185 inclusive of all materials and firings including Eventbrite fees.
