About the Course

Enjoy a day getting creative with clay at my studio in beautiful rural Dorset. Come and learn how to make your own ceramics at this hands on pottery class.

This popular class runs every month and is suitable for all skill levels. Please see our website for availability of places and to book.

The class will start with a short demonstration of hand building, modelling & surface decoration techniques. There will also be a quick wheel throwing opportunity.

After that it's over to you to sculpt your own creations from earthenware clay. Once complete, decorate your greenware with coloured underglaze paints to finish your creations. You can expect to make up to two pieces of pottery.

Leave with Imogen to glaze and fire your work, ready for collection (or delivery for P&P) around 4-6 weeks later.

Places are limited to 6 students to ensure plenty of one to one tuition and support throughout.
