A day to discover or hone your talents.
An intensive day to move rapidly forward from whatever point you are in your throwing skills whether you are a beginner or graduate pottery student.
Plus tea and cake!
Your tutor Lorraine, a graduate of Bath Academy of Art, has worked in as a production thrower in a Black Country factory, at a company in Stoke and now a designer maker. She will teach you what you want to know from the basic methods to specific techniques or shapes. Your first five or six pots will dried enough for you to turn and finish later during the day. Lorraine will subsequently bisque fire and glaze with your choice of a stoneware glaze from a selection. Or you could return for a half or whole day to choose and use your own combinations of glaze and colours to complete the process and learn about kiln firing.
For the beginner you will leave having made at the very least five or six thrown, turned, and possibly handled and lidded pots and all you need to arrive with is enthusiasm and possibly a packed lunch.
For more experienced students ther will be technical notes on making, glazing, firing and advice of what do do next if you wish. If you have an idea of where you want to be by the end of the day just brief Lorraine ahead of your day.
What's included in the price?
Everything you need to make pots under expert tuition and also homemade afternoon tea and cake.
