Day 1 The workshop starts at 10am. After introductions and initial demonstration, you’ll be individually assigned a potter’s wheel for the duration of the workshop. The group will be guided, step by step, through the pot throwing process. Once you have got the hang of things, you will be encouraged to develop at your own pace with individual tutoring as and when required. We break for lunch around 1pm. (Please bring a packed lunch) We’ll stop for an hour, but you are very welcome to take a shorter break and get straight back on to the wheel for untutored practice. In the afternoon there are further demonstrations after which you will work larger lumps of clay, make bigger pots and explore different shapes and forms. We conclude the workshop by cleaning the wheels and selecting between one and three pieces to be fired and glazed. (Weight dependent – extra pots can be fired at £6 per 250 g, payable on the day) The course ends at 4pm. (If you are participating in the two-day course your pots will be left to slightly harden overnight, so you can work on them the following morning) Day 2 10am. Your pots from Saturday are now ‘leather-hard’ and ready to be trimmed. After further demonstrations you will learn how to add foot-rings, join handles and attach other motifs. After lunch and once you have experimented with the techniques, you will select between one and four of your favourite pots, depending on size, and paint them using under-glazes and decorating slips. (Extra pots can be fired at £6 per 250 g, payable on the day.) The weekend concludes at 4pm. Your fabulous creations will be left with us to dry thoroughly before they go into the kiln. Once they have been fired and glazed, we‟ll carefully wrap and dispatch your finished pots to your home address. You will be delighted at the professional results when they arrive at your doorstep approximately one month later.
