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 beginners or for those who have done some pottery before. 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 generally use the slab building technique. This lends itself brilliantly to the use of texture (stamping, rolling in leaves/seed-heads/lace etc) and 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! 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.

Christmas Decoration Workshops
In the first week, you will make your decorations from raw clay and then glaze them in the second week. They will then be glazed and fired ready for you to collect approximately three weeks later. Depending on how detailed your decorations are, you will probably make 5-10 items. The course cost includes up to 10 decorations and there will be a small additional charge for additional pieces.
