Pottery Experience Day - design & make your own Ceramics
Contact course provider
About the Course
Pottery experience day at my studio in rural Dorset. Every month on a Thursday. Bespoke sessions can be arranged on request.
Ever fancied trying your hand at working with clay? Come and learn how at this practical and creative class. Group size is small and friendly and brilliant for friends, parties or work days out.
The day will start with a cup of tea, and short demonstration of hand building, sculpting & surface decoration techniques. You will also get to have a throw on the wheel.
After that it's over to you. Sketch out your design on paper (optional) and then create it from raw earthenware clay.
Once complete, decorate your greenware with coloured underglaze to finish your work of art.
Leave with me to glaze and fire your makes, ready for collection (or delivery) around 3-4 weeks later. Places are limited to just 6 to ensure plenty of one to one tuition and booking is essential, email via the contact form above.
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.
What's included in the price?
Includes tuition plus all basic materials and two firings (bisc and glaze).
My studio is in a converted barn in a beautiful rural location close to Christchurch, nestled by the New Forest and Avon Beach. You will need a car to get here, but we do have ample free parking. There are several lovely pubs close by should you want a bite to eat, and across the yard is a cider press!
