Pottery Throwing (Group Discounts Available) Lessons in Worcester

X

Description

Pottery throwing sessions with a potter's wheel for up to 4 people (discounts available for groups - please check options with dates) run throughout the year with Chris Greening in North Worcester. A great benefit of this course is that you get to both make and decorate your pots in the same session - there isn't a need to come back to the pottery to do a further decorating stage (unless of course you want to!). You can choose to book either a one-off lesson that is suitable for absolute beginners as well as those revisiting skills that may have got rusty or, sign up for multiple sessions to complete a pottery project. Please note that the price is per person. We will use earthenware (the clay used in garden pots) clay with coloured slips (liquid clay) which gives a wide range of decorative options. The lesson will include both making and decorating the pot, a great benefit of slipware pottery - rather than having to return for a separate decorating session. The workshop is equipped with 4 potter’s wheels and a range of tools which will be available for you to try out. 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 aim to throw and decorate at least two pots you can either take home (in raw clay state) at the end of the lesson or wait for it to be fired. Please note - weekend (inc Bank Holidays) classes require a minimum of two people to book. Please note - the price shown is for the option total shown when selecting a date: 1-2-1 Lesson: (£85) 2 People (£145) 3 People (£200) 4 People (£236) Please note - sadly, due to health & safety and available space we are unable to accommodate pets or non participating people.

What's included in the price?

One off “taster” lessons, or you can book multiple sessions and work on a range of projects. A lesson includes approximately 3lb of clay and the firing of two of your pieces, which will be ready to collect in approximately 3-4 weeks. Alternatively, postage can be arranged if preferred. - Collection of Pots: Due to lack of storage space I'm afraid I can only hold on to your beautiful pots for a month after they come out of the kiln. After that point they will be disposed of. If you would like your pots but unable to collect them please contact me to discuss postage of your pots and a cost for that.

I started work as a hydrographic surveyor following a degree in marine geology. Whilst it might be a bit of a leap from dredging up clay to using it on a potter’s wheel, the influence of the marine environment is evident in my work. I use coloured liquid clay (slip) which provides a fantastic fluid palette for me to explore geological and marine geomorphology patterns. A member of both the Midlands and, Westcountry Potters Associations I run market stalls across Worcestershire and beyond.
