Hello, I'm Sharon, an experienced self taught ceramic Sculpture & clay artist, and guest tutor for Clayshare. I regularly run fun and informal pottery sessions from my studio in Heskin, Lancashire.
This fabulous fun filled day explores lots of elements of pottery making.
You will experience throwing pots on the potters wheel. You will be shown and guided on how to make your first pot, then given time to practice by yourself. Help & assistance is on hand at all times. We then look at various methods we can use create a build by hand building.
You will then choose an item to make from our many ideas in the studio, you will then be shown, step by step how to make it in clay. You will learn how to shape, blend & attach the clay together to form your masterpiece.
Once you have made your creations we stop for lunch. You can bring a packed lunch with you, or take a break in either the Barn Cafe or the Two Birds tea room within the centre (additional cost).
In the afternoon we relax with some pottery painting, we have loads of bisque pots to choose from and its a lovely way to bring the day to an end.
All our sessions are run 1:1 unless you come as a couple or part of a group, and run everyday except Mondays.
All your clay creations are taken home on the day to air dry, or as an optional extra, you can have them fired & return to paint them around 2 weeks later. The cost is £3.50 per pot.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
