A guided session creating a hand built pinch-pot bowl /figure/garden cane topper

About this event

There will be a maximum of eight participants. This popular workshop for all ages, is suitable for both those experienced in working with clay and those with none. This techniques lends itself to a vast array of projects, so the 'bowl /figure/garden cane topper suggestions are just some of the things that can be formed.

In this up to 3 hour session, Tina will give step by step guidance of pinch pot techniques and then you can decorate your item with underglaze colours.

Approx half the session is making your item and half decorating ( as the coloured undeglaze 'paint' needs to dry between coats)

All materials and tools will be provided and the Kiln-firing & glaze/finish materials are included in the fee. All you need is to wear old clothe & an apron

At the end of the workshop your pot will be :

  • taken back to Tina's studio to be dried ( +/- 4/5 days)
  • fired in a kiln 'bisque' firing (24 hours)
  • a clear glaze applied by Tina
  • fired again for a 24 hour 'glaze' firing.

Overall the process takes approx 2 -3 weeks.

Your creation will be available for collection later (at Tina's studio in Shaldon) on set days to be arranged with you on the day. If you need your item to be posted, this will be at extra cost, and at your risk regarding breakages.
