Come join me for regular pottery classes on Wednesday 1.30-4pm 6wks £180 at my studio in Moretonhampstead, Devon.
I am very passionate about what I do and what I teach. This is a 6-week rolling course, ie you purchase 6 weeks which get deducted when you book in (no losing out if you're going on holiday), designed to guide you through your 'next steps' - I will 'hold your hand' and talk you step-by-step through your chosen techniques, whether it be beginners or more advanced throwing or slab building - you lead the way. Ask as many questions as you need and I will answer without hesitation - we all have different learning capabilities and I respect this.
We will cover all the basic pottery techniques such as pinch pots (totally underestimated in my opinion), coil pots, slab pots, slip casting, throwing on electric wheel and, of course, decorating all the lovely work you produce.
You will experience my utmost attention with access, as you progress, to more technical making and decorating techniques, options of further clays, glazes and even making a glaze of your own from scratch. I will show you how to reclaim used clay to enable you to use it again..
Items made will be charged for £5 per kg finished, ie glazed and fired.
This course is held in a working studio, therefore, your respect of the environment would need to be acknowledged and suitable clothing/footwear worn.
