In this session, you will be introduced to the basic methods of handbuilding with clay.
I will show you how to prep the clay, how to pinch a pot, how to roll and add coils, how to roll and attach slabs together as well as finishing techniques. I will show you the basics of how to work with clay, including joining methods and the firing process it will go through. We will then explore adding patterns and colour to your pieces using coloured handmade slips and decorating techniques.
You can expect to make up to five pots, which I will fire and glaze for you - we will chat at the end of your session about glaze options. Additional pieces can be fired and glazed at £5 per pot.
I will be in touch when your pieces are ready to collect (Usually between 2 and 3 weeks) or I can post them to you at usual P&P prices.
Prices are per person per session.
To book a session, please send me a message including the workshop you are interested in, for how many people (class sizes are for 1, 2 or 3 people, so you get the most attention!) as well as any days that you are potentially free. I can be flexible with workshops, as there are no set dates or times, we just arrange a time to suit us both.
