On all the courses, we will be working with rolled out slabs of clay and I will show you how to add texture to the clay using natural materials, fabrics, lace and stamps. If you have things at home, or plants in your garden, that you think would make good patterns and textures and that you would like to bring along, please do so.

With the three week courses, the first two weeks will be spent making your items and I will then bisque fire your work. You will paint your items with glazes in the third week and I will then fire your work for a second time (with the two week courses you will make your items in the first week and glaze them in the second week). Your items will be ready to collect approximately 2 weeks later.

On the Dishes, Plaques and Decorations course, I will show you how to use moulds to make small dishes and how to make flat items such as plaques, decorations and coasters. You can expect to make 2-6 items depending on the size and detail of the pieces.

On the Mugs, Jugs and Vases course, I will show you how to turn the flat pieces of clay into cylindrical vessels and how to add a handle if required. You can expect to make 1-2 cylindrical items depending on the detail and size of the items. There may also be time to make 1-2 small, flat items too.

On the Christmas decorations course, I will have lots of different cutters available and you will be able to make up to 10 decorations, depending on the detail on each item.
