Hand built ceramics: Make your own jug and bowl
Contact course provider
About the Course
Come and spend some time developing your ceramics skills in a relaxing, supportive environment. Workshops are open to all and being small groups only, are individually tailored to ability. All workshops are run by myself, I've taught art for over 25 years as well as creating my own work, and take place in my studio in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
A day spent learning hand building techniques so that you are able to roll out and build from slabs of clay.
You will make either a jug or vessel including imprinted surface decoration and sgrafitto drawing (scratching into the surface of the clay) and also a shallow slab or coil bowl which will further develop your surface decoration skills through printing, imprinting and use of body stains, coloured slips and underglazes.
Your work will be fired and ready for collection the following week.
Horton in Ribblesdale is on the Settle-Carlisle line so possible by public transport. The workshop is family friendly and my studio has wheelchair access, although easily accessible the toilet is up a gravel drive. Please state if mobility assistance will be needed.

What's included in the price?
A light lunch (soup, sandwiches and cake) and unlimited tea and coffee and biscuits are provided throughout the day.... creativity needs fuel!
All materials are provided, just bring an apron.
Got the course as a birthday present, wasn't sure what to expect. Spent a great day with Penny and other potters in Horton. Everything was clearly explained and after a few disasters I got the hang of the processes. On opening the fired jug and pot by post, I was amazed at the glazes. Recommended.
