6 Week Pottery Hand Building - Wednesday Morning
During the 6 week hand building course you will work on a number of projects ranging from functional to sculptural. Each lesson will start with clay preparation, followed by a demonstration by the tutor. You will then have time to practice what has been demonstrated and guidance will be offered where needed. If you need a break, the kettle is always on with tea and coffee in abundance so please do help yourselves...or ask the tutor to make a brew!
Skills you will learn:
Slab rolling and compression.
Working to a template.
Using an Extruder.
Pinch pot technique.
Surface textures and detailing.
Fettling and preparation for firing.
Working with clay can be messy. We supply aprons but it is probably best if you come to the classes in clothes and footwear you don't mind getting dirty. No watches or jewellery to be worn and you may want to tie your hair back in preparation.
You can book your place right away by selecting from the drop down options, the day and time that is suitable for you. Please note the course must be paid for in full before attending. If you miss a class this may be made up depending on available space. All work is fired and glazed and will be ready to collect two weeks after the completion of your course. All hand built creations will be glazed, colours may vary depending on availability. If you would like to glaze your pieces yourself this can be done by booking onto one of our glazing sessions, usually held on a Sunday.
