What will I learn?

In this workshop, you will be taught the technique of making slab-built pottery, which will include rolling slabs of clay, decorating clay with coloured slips, joining, and forming. You will also learn to make and attach a clay handle and spout. Through expert demonstration and personalised guidance, you will be supported to create your own hand-built water jug. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to explore surface decoration through textures, stamps, and carving. This immersive workshop will give you an authentic experience of learning the craft of pottery in a fully creative and supportive environment. To complete your hand-built water jug, you will choose your own colour scheme from a selection of the studio’s glazes. 


What will I take home?

On this course you will make a water jug to be glaze and fired in the kiln. Your glazed work will be ready for collection from the studio three weeks later or posted to your door for a fee of £8.00.
