What will I learn?

In this four-hour workshop, you will be taught the technique of making moulded pottery, which will include rolling slabs of clay, decorating clay with coloured slips, and forming clay over a plaster mould. Through expert demonstration and personalised guidance, you will be supported to create your own tableware set, which will include a plate, a side plate, a bowl and a ramekin. 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 tableware set, 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 dinner plate, a side plate, a bowl and a ramekin to be glaze and fired in the kiln. Your glazed tableware set will be ready for collection from the studio three weeks later or posted to your door for a fee of £12.00.
