Come along to my studio in Southampton, near Oxford Street, and learn how to make a bowl on a pottery wheel!
You will discover how to prepare clay, how to throw a basic form on a pottery wheel and learn a little about trimming and glazing.
Everyone attending will get 4 x 250g of clay to make four bowls, you will start by wedging the clay to remove air bubbles and lumps. You'll then move onto learning how to centre and throw the bowl on the wheel. I can also talk a little about finishing the thrown items, how to trim foot rings and decorate with different types of glazes.
You can make four bowls, I can then fire these for you and you can come back to glaze another time if you want!
This event is timed alongside the British Art Show 8, which is finishing it's UK tour in Southampton on the weekend of the 22nd & 23rd. The Arches Studio will be open to the public, we are exhibiting work and running workshops throughout the weekends of the 22nd, 23rd and 29th and 30th!
