Open House 12th October

I will be holding my annual “Open House” event on Friday 12th October.

This is a great opportunity for me to invite my customers old and new to my home for a chat with tea/coffee and cake, and to show some of my work. I will be supporting the “Make A Wish” charity this year with a 20% donation from all items sold. I’ll have a selection of gifts and tableware and decorations available to buy.

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 £45 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.

Course dates for Autumn 2018 are as follows:

Mondays 24 September, 1 October, 8 October 8-9.30pm **FULL** – more dates to follow!

Two week Christmas Decoration Making Special! Mondays 29 October and 5 November 8-9.30pm – **FULL** However I’m now taking names to add a second course if enough interest!

Please contact me to for more information or to book a place. Gift vouchers available.
