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 for P&P) around 4-6 weeks later.

Places are limited to 5 students to ensure plenty of one to one tuition and support throughout.
