This pottery handbuilding workshop is suitable for either a complete beginner, or for those that have some experience working with clay and would like to develop their skills.
During the workshop you will be able to try out different handbuilding techniques such as pinch pots and coiling, slab building and using moulds. You will be able to create items such as a coiled bowl, a slabbed vase or a pinch pot animal! We will guide you through the different making techniques but you can be as creative as you like. We will demonstrate different ways to add texture, pattern and apply colour. You can choose 2 of your items to be fired and glazed. These will be ready to collect approximately 4-6 weeks later.
We are located in a rural, peaceful setting on a small farm on the outskirts of Holbeach, near Spalding in Lincolnshire, where we also keep our pedigree sheep! There is plenty of off road parking.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
