Adult Pottery Classes
I hold regular short courses at my home in Colden Common. The courses are held over three weeks with each week’s session lasting an hour and a half. The cost is £50 and includes two medium sized glazed and fired items (or equivalent). There will be a small additional charge for more items.
Each course is limited to six people and is suitable for all abilities. The small class size allows me to spend quality time with each person to assist them to make the items that they want to.
The first two weeks are dedicated to making with the raw clay and we can use slab, coil and pinch pot techniques to create a wide variety of handbuilt items. Between weeks two and three I will bisque fire your work ready to paint and glaze in the final week. Your finished items will be ready for collection approximately two weeks later.
If you are a beginner, I will introduce you to the slab rolling technique and show you how to add texture and layers to your work – this simple technique can be used to create an amazing variety of items from flat work such as pictures, wall hangings, tiles or house numbers to bowls, plates, jugs, vases and tea-light holders to name just a few ideas! If you have done some pottery before, I can help you develop your hand building skills and we can start to introduce other techniques.
In the Autumn, I will also be running special 2 week courses specifically to make Christmas decorations / Christmas bunting. In the first week you will create your decorations in clay which I will bisque fire for you ready to glaze paint in the second week. The items will then be fired for a second time and ready to collect in approximately 2 weeks. Up to 10 decorations are included in the course cost, if you make more than this, there will be a smal additional charge.
Course dates for 2019 are as follows:
Mondays 16th, 23rd, 30th September 8-9.30pm £50
Christmas Decoration Special: Mondays 21st October and 4th November 8-9.30pm £45
