Taught by Rosanna Martin and Martha Opher
This relaxed session gives you the opportunity to explore making with clay for the first time, or for a refresher and intro to the studio if you’ve done some making before. Sessions allow time for having a go on the potters wheel, attempting a pinch pot and learning how to coil build. Full demonstrations are given at the beginning and tuition and support is on hand throughout.
£30 for one session includes tuition, materials, tools, equipment and a bisque and glaze firing of your work. A transparent glaze will be put on your work after the session and your pieces will be ready to collect within 3-4 weeks of the session.

The classes have a maximum of 4 participants and you will be allocated your own wheel for the duration of the course allowing for focused time and plenty of one-to-one tuition.

In this four week course you will learn how to mix up, test and adapt a glaze recipe using raw materials from scratch. You will learn the essential ingredients needed to create a glaze and will gain an understanding of the fundamentals behind how a glaze works. We will mix up selected base recipes and alter them, using oxides and stains to explore colour and opacity. We will create line and bi-axel blends to generate new and unexpected results. You will also research and find glaze recipes of your own and have the chance to trial them out.
