About The Event
Suitable for beginners.
During this approx 3 hour session you will learn to wedge and prepare your clay for use and it’s importance.
I will demonstrate how to turn your ball of clay into a beautiful pinch pot flower pot, were you can then decide whether to add feet or table tops standing, or holes for hanging. You will have the opportunity to do textures or prints to your final piece.
I will then demonstrate how to throw a dimple cup on the table top wheel. I will guide you throughout, step by step as a small group. You will then have the opportunity to throw your own cup, don’t worry if it goes a little wrong as you will be able to choose one from your best. All materials and firing are included. You will then have the chance to choose a glaze colour which I will apply to your fired bisque at a later date after the first firing. Additional colours/glazes aside from the one you choose will incur an additional charge. You may wish to keep and have fired more than 1 of each of the items that you make, that can be arranged fine at an additional cost of £10 per item.
Whilst you’re making your pinch pot flower pots, each of you will then have the chance to come and throw your cup.
If you’d like to book a similar session for a slightly larger group, or a private hire please get in touch.
