The Pottery Experience Day is an introduction to working with clay, and suitable for all skill levels. Design and create your own pottery in a day! The workshop begins with a demonstration of hand building techniques including pinch & slab, plus throwing on the potters wheel. You’ll also learn a range of surface decoration methods. Spend the rest of the day creating your own wares. Once complete, add colour to your work using underglaze paints to finish. Imogen will then glaze and fire your pottery ready for collection around 4-6 weeks later (or delivery for P&P costs).
Class sizes are small and friendly, and Imogen will be on hand to offer support with ideas and processes throughout. Complimentary refreshments included.
The price (of £70) per person includes tuition, materials & kiln firing. You can expect to make one large piece, or up to three smaller pieces to be fired. Additional materials can be purchased on the day if required.
