About The Event
Why not book onto this session to make something really special and unique.
During this 4 hour session (aprox) I will teach you how to wedge clay, and it's importance. How to roll large pieces of clay, smooth the clay, add texture and pattern using tools and mould the clay. You will then be able to carve the clay. I will guide you throughout, step by step as a small group of up to 4 people. All materials are included. You will be using stoneware clay so your finished items can go in the garden and will be frost proof, or you can turn your fairy house into a lamp buy putting fairy lights inside (fairy lights not included).
You will then have the chance to choose a glaze colour which I will apply to your fired bisque at a later date. If you wish to return to glaze your items yourself and use a mixture of colours then other dates will be provided for the group to return At a small additional cost of £12pp including all the glaze choices and firing.
Refrehsments and biscuits will be provided throughout the session feel free to bring your own lunch and notify me of any dietary reqirements.
Please note your finished ceramics will not be ready to collect until 3-4 weeks later. The making of ceramics is a process and time consuming.
Please ensure you wear suitable footwear and clothing as clay is messy. Please remove rings beforehand if it is possible.
Suitable for beginners and over 8's - please ensure under 16's are supervised by a parent at all times (parents supervising children do not need to book a separate ticket but do not to inform me on the booking so I can ensure there is space).
