You've watched the Great Pottery Throw Down and you say 'I would like to have a go at that.' Well look no further. You can at A Touch of Clay. Read on.
This is a private group of 4 for family or friends to get together session with sole use of studio for the duration of the workshop.
You require absolutely no experience as guidance is given all the way. It consists of a handbuilding section and a throw a pot section for each family or group member.
How it works:
Firstly we demonstrate how to prepare clay and some basic handbuilding skills. Once mastered you are on your way to producing your creation. There is lots of inspiration at the studio or you can bring your own ideas.
Each individual works separately on the wheel whilst the others are creating their handbuild. We will work with you to centre the clay and mould the pot. Once you have made your pot you return to carry on with your handbuild.
Once all the creations are finished coloured decoration can be added at the same session.
Work is left with us for around 4 weeks to dry, bisque fire, glaze and second fire.
It can then be collected or we can post it to you at additional cost.
