Would you like to join a weekly class to try your hand at hand-building and thrown pottery? Each week a new skill will be demonstrated and you will have a chance to
practice and develop your own work, taking turns on the wheels and hand building.
At the moment the classes are limited to six students, which works well as everybody gets plenty of time on the wheels, as well as clay preparation, hand-building and finishing pots made the previous week, handle-making and trimming, and pot decoration.
There is one Leach kick wheel and two electric wheels indoors and another kick wheel outdoors (used in warm weather!). Each week includes demonstrations and plenty of individual tuition and guidance in individual projects.
Classes are on:
Tuesday mornings (9.15 - 11.45) and
Wednesday evening ( 6.30 - 9.00)
Thursday evening (6.30 - 9.00)
The time allows for an hour's work, a tea break, another hour's work and then cleaning up.
pottery classes are £15 per week, payable in advance for a half-term block (this Spring there are two half terms, one of 5 weeks and one of 7 weeks ). Bookings are now being taken. Classes start on week of 9th January. Half term is week of 13th February, term ends on 6th April 2017.
The classes are suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
Pots may be selected to be left to dry, bisque fired, glazed and refired. This process takes several weeks and there is a charge of £6.00 per kilo finished weight,
£5.00 per kilo biscuit fired. Clay and glazes used are all stoneware.
