About this event

Cyan Clayworks is an artist-run, non profit studio and teaching space. This three hour introductory class is suitable for adult beginners, and will focus on tile making, press moulded dishes and wheel throwing. Each student will be introduced to the basics of throwing; centering the clay, and forming a small vessel each. You will be able to create a small group of unique textured and coloured slip decorated tiles and a pressmoulded dish using one of our moulds.

Limited class sizes with both Fiona and Chris teaching so lots of hands on support! You will be given one to one support while on the wheel.

Your work will be trimmed (wheelthrown pots), fired and glazed ready to collect a few weeks later. You'll be notified by email and will then have a month to collect your pieces.

£60 per person, inclusive of booking fee, materials, preparation, glazing and firings.

Organiser Cyan Clayworks

Organiser of Ceramics: throwing, tiles and press moulds taster (Jul)

Cyan Clayworks was established in 2012 as a Community Interest Company and is a specialist centre for creative learning and making run by Chris Donnelly and Fiona Thompson. It's a working studio, with the bright open plan workspace divided into different areas. An important ethos to this artist run studio is that class sizes are small to allow for enough support for each student. 

 

As practising ceramic artists, trained to postgraduate level, they bring a lot of experience in many aspects of studio practice. Fiona specialises in handbuilding and various approaches to the surface, and established her practice in the mid 1990s. Chris focuses on tableware, both wheelthrown and jigger jollied (a specialist industrial technique adapted for studio use), and has been making work since the mid 1990s also after studying in Canada. Both have exhibited widely, taught in numerous locations and taken part in artist residencies. 

 

Regular courses and bespoke workshops are run at the studio, and individual tuition for all levels of ability is offered. Many professional artists, designers and students have passed through the doors, learning new skills to diversify their own knowledge. Chris and Fiona enjoy working with others and passing on their knowledge and enthusiasm for ceramics. 

 

All the workshops and courses are aimed at adults. It is an open plan work space, and like any ceramic studio, it contains essential machinery, tools/equipment and hazardous raw materials. The studio is therefore not able to accomodate anyone under 17 or adults with complex support needs, for health and safety reasons.
