4-Week Play with Clay Course (Evening), 27 June | Event in Chesham | AllEvents.in 4-Week Play with Clay Course (Evening)
Our 5-week 'Play with Clay' courses always sell out so quickly which is great but for the 2nd half of our Summer Term the dates don't really allow...so.....we have created a 4-week version which we hope will mean that everyone who is keen to get started asap can have a go!



The 4-week 'Play with Clay' course is perfect for anyone who wants to learn the basics of ceramics or continue building their pottery skills. The aim of this course have fun but also to make some really practical, useable objects. Over the course of 4 evenings you will try your hand at both slab and hand-building, and have the opportunity to throw on the wheel too.



Your teacher, Caroline Oden (co-founder of Where Inspiration Blooms), is an experienced potter, having taught this small-group course regularly at Where Inspiration Blooms over the last 3 years. Caroline is a really generous teacher, sharing all of her tips and tricks so that you can produce pieces you are really proud of, which is why this course is always a sell-out.



For the first 3 weeks, you will be mainly using slab and hand-building techniques to make a plate, a bowl and a vase/plant pot. You will learn how to work with the clay, and how to give beautiful finishes to your pieces. Using leaves, grasses, lace and stamps, you will learn the best methods to create texture and personalised designs.



You will also learn how to add details with techniques including coloured slip, sgraffito and score & slip. Each week you will create an interesting and completely individual item which will go on to be fired in our kiln. We will fire your 2 best pieces from each of first 3 pottery sessions - so 6 pieces in total.



Caroline will also be demonstrating how to throw on the wheel during these sessions for those who wish to give throwing a go. Over the 3 weeks, everyone will have the chance to throw a bowl or handleless cup on the wheel if they would like to.



The final week of the course will be devoted to glazing your 6 fired pieces. We have a wide selection of glazes and underglazes for you to choose from, or you can also bring your own if you have a specific colour you would like to use. Additional detail and effects can be added at this stage using wax resist techniques.



This course is good for both absolute beginners wishing to explore ceramics but also anyone one who has done a bit of ceramic work before and wants to take it further. There will be plenty of 1-to-1 tuition.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to The Barn!



Course dates - 27th June, 4th July, 11th July & 18th July.
