About the Course

LEVEL: Beginner

This course is suitable for complete beginners or students who may have done some pottery in the past. Students will be shown how to centre the clay, throw a few simple shapes such as bowls, mugs and jugs. You will also be show how to attach handles and use coloured clay slips to decorate your creations. The finished pots will be glazed and fired for you and will be available for you to pick up at a later date.

The workshop will run on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am until 5:00pm with a break for lunch (included in the price). There will be places for up to 4 students at £180 each which covers all materials and firing costs. Please be aware that full payment is required to guarantee your place on the course.

It is advisable to wear clothes you don’t mind getting clay on, however, some rather fetching plastic aprons will be provided. Please feel free to bring along your own apron if you prefer.

*** This is a full weekend of throwing - if you are interested in something a little less intensive, have a look at my 2 hour Throwing Taster Sessions ***

ABOUT THE TUTOR:
After graduating from the 3D Design course at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2005, I moved back to Wales to established a workshop on the family farm near Aberystwyth. I made wood-fired stoneware pots and made my own ash based glazes.

After working in the Peak District for many years, I moved in 2018 to my new studio in Sowerby Bridge (near Halifax), where I now make earthenware tiles based on medieval designs. I still make pots and once a year I take a selection of pots down to Wales to fire in the wood-firing kiln.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
