Welcome to a journey of inspiration & fun!
Our taster session is a brilliant way to get a feel for working with clay. This taster is for you if you are a beginner and you want to learn the different shaping techniques and get a first sense of how to use clay to shape an idea.
Clay is a very friendly, rewarding and forgiving material with many secrets to share that is why we love it! Whether you book for yourself or a group of friends, this is a wonderfully social and spirited introduction to the joys of creating! We like to keep classes small, so each course has a max of 8-10 people per class allowing for a more intimate and relaxing experience. The price includes all clay, materials, and firings.
ABOUT THE COURSE:
We start the course with a small introduction to different shaping techniques: pinching, coiling and press moulding and how to use the tools you have at your disposal. Then it is time to get creating!
During the workshop there are quite a few different options to choose from on what to make from little leaves to add to our student installation to small bowls, coasters and small vessels of any kind allowing you to utilise the different techniques we introduced to then use the tools to carve, print and colour incise. You are welcome to play and experiment as much as you like within these two hours.
Then we ask you to choose your favourite 2 pieces, we will glaze your pieces in white dipping glaze and will fire everything for you. Once they are ready we will contact you to come to pick them up.
At the end of the course, calculate roughly 15-30 additional minutes to clean your station, tools and make the difficult decision of choosing which of the wonderful creations you want to fire.
Classwork is usually ready in 4-6 weeks. We will notify you by email and you can pop by the studio to collect your pieces. Once we have notified you, we can not keep items for longer than 10 calendar days due to limited storage in our workshop after that we donate them to local charities.
