One-to-one ceramics workshop - working with porcelain
Sat 5 August 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
Book a one to one workshop with Elaine Bolt - try throwing with porcelain or handbuilding with clay at Elaine's Brighton workshop.
The session includes:
- a one-to-one workshop day 10am to 4pm
- all clay and material used
- tea and biscuits provided (lunch is not provided, but available form nearby shops/cafes)
The day’s session will cover throwing with porcelain on the potter’s wheel; covering basic techniques of clay preparation, centring on the wheel, throwing a cylinder. Follow-up sessions can include turning/trimming vessels and adding handles. Tailored sessions can include slab-building and coiling techniques.
The sessions are designed as taster days for beginners or those new to porcelain, but follow up bookings can be made to continue practicing your skills.
A limited number of sessions are available on Saturdays in July or August 2015.
Dates available are:
July 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th
August 6th, 13th
Sessions will be held at Elaine Bolt’s ceramic workshop at Atelier 51 Brighton, East Sussex. Any finished pieces will be glazed and fired separately by Elaine at a later date, using simple glazes in use at the studio. Please note that firing is likely to take place in September, so any finished pieces made earlier will not be available until then.
You will need to bring an apron (or clothes you don't mind getting splatted with clay!) and wear sensible/sturdy shoes.
