Chris makes traditional, functional pottery for modern living.
The workshop is equipped with a potter’s wheel, slab roller (good for making tiles and platters), extruder (for squeezing clay shapes), kiln and a range of tools which will be available for you to try out.
We will use either earthenware (the clay used in garden pots) or stoneware (a whiter clay generally used for kitchenware) which gives a wide range of decorative options.
Pottery is a very broad subject and it can sometimes be difficult to know where to start, but if you just want to “have a go at pottery” then we can fit in a go at throwing a pot (or two) as well as trying some hand building techniques, such as a tile or plate. The aim will be to have made something you can either take home (in raw clay state) at the end of the lesson or wait for it to be fired.
What's included in the price?
