01/03/20 The beginning of 3 ceramic workshops. 2 -4pm. “Pushing Boundaries”

We  are putting on a few workshops starting in March. So many people have liked the oval shaped decorated container, I have decided to run a workshop showing how it is made.  The photo is of one I make! There will be no throwing on the wheel on this occasion as it is quite time consuming. The programme is as follows – we will make the pot on Sunday March 1st. The pot will be fired, but you will have to be available to glaze it on March 15th.  On that day you will be able to glaze your pot in different colours, using oxides and glazes and wax resist (I will show you how to do this – so don’t worry!)  AND throw a pot on the wheel for another raku firing. This raku firing will be on April 19th.

The cost for the 3 workshops – making, decorating and raku will be £50. If you cannot come and decorate and fire your raku pot, then deduct £10 from the cost. Your wheel thrown pot will then be glazed as usual!

Kitchen ware

We do a range of ceramics that you would use in the kitchen – garlic pots, storage jars, oil/vinegar jars and salt pigs.

The pots can be made plain or with a mouse on the side.

 

 

Jugs

What would you use a jug for? Flower arranging? Cream or milk? A table decoration – the choice is yours.
