About the Course
Get creative with clay at my studio in beautiful rural Dorset. Come and learn how to make your own ceramics at this hands on class. Small and friendly groups that are brilliant for friends, parties or work days out.
This class runs every month and is suitable for all skill levels.
NEXT SESSIONS: 11th November, 9th December 2017
Includes tuition, materials and two firings. (if you want to make something huge then extra charges may apply for clay/firing!)
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! You can sketch out your design on paper, and then sculpt it from raw earthenware clay.
Once complete, decorate your greenware with coloured underglaze paints to finish your creation.
Leave with me to glaze and fire your makes, ready for collection (or delivery) around 3-4 weeks later.
Places are limited to just 6 to ensure plenty of one to one tuition and booking is essential, email via the contact form above.
Please feel free to bring snacks with you, I can supply plenty of tea, coffee, plant milk and biscuits.

There are several lovely pubs close by should you want a bite to eat, and across the yard is a cider press!
