About the Course

Spend the day working with clay in different ways. Slab work, pinching or sculpturing.
You can learn the basics while making a slab vase, a pinched bird and and sculptured teddy bear or even a Greenman.
You could also make a range of vases or mugs and learn how to surface decorate them.
You can even come along with your own project such as a house plaque a set of egg cups or a mythical figure.

This course is suitable for beginners or more experienced potters.

Children are welcome from the age of 8 but must be accompanied by an adult (sorry full price for both!) Teenagers from the age of 13 are welcome on their own!

Glazing of items is possible by arrangement at my regular classes. We do have oxide stencils available to use on the day which we love!

The course will be run by an experienced sculptural ceramicist and teacher, Lesley Woods, who runs regular classes at the venue throughout the year.

This course will definitely go ahead as places have already been booked on it!
