Our workshops are relaxed, fun & informal. All are taught step by step so they are suitable for beginners. Workshops can also be adapted for more experienced potters or children aged 8 years and over.
DATES & TIMES....
The courses take around 4 hours and run from 10.15am -2.15pm, we are flexible and later starts can be arranged. Courses run weekdays & weekends (except Mondays).
I work at your level, demonstrating each step as we build, you may take a little longer with your build, thats okay, there is no rush.
We have a small lunch break, bring your lunch, or sandwiches, hot barms & pies can be purchased from a number of food outlets on site.
We provide all the tools & equipment you will need.
Kiln firing is included in the price, items will be ready for collection aprox 3 weeks later. They can then be painted with acrylics at home.
Tea and coffee during the session.
You have the option of glazing your work with coloured underglazes. This is an additional £10, you simply return to the studio after 2-3 weeks to apply your glazes then leave it with us for a second fire, with collection a week later.
We can apply a black oxide wash to your creation & re fire (No additional charge)
The Workshops must be booked in advance, simply ring the studio or leave us a message with a date you wish to come. We will check availability & provisionally book you in. The reseravation is held for 24 hours whilst you pay a small deposit. Once paid your booking is confirmed.
Dont forget, all our classes are available as gift Vouchers-they make fabulous presents
