This workshop fee is £140 pp and is a 6 hour workshop from 10am - 4pm. This short course covers everything from getting started with clay work, to decorating your pottery or sculpture. This is ideal for someone starting out in learning about pottery and clay. However, it is also suitable for those with experience in clay. We will cover main hand-building techniques; pinch pots, slab building and coil pots and using moulds. There is an opportunity to learn how to throw a pot on the wheel, time allowing. By the end of the day you will have produced 2-4 small pieces of work and understood the fundamental skills used in pottery. A light lunch and refreshments are included. Minimum of 2 people to run.
