Thursday 18th August, 10am-4pm
After a short introduction to the workshop, you will be shown a number of hand-building techniques - coiling, pinching and slab-building. You will experiment with these techniques producing a variety of forms to discover which technique is best suited to you.
You will then be shown a variety of finished pieces and will plan out a detailed design a finished work of your own which you will carry out in clay after lunch. By the end of the day your hand-built work will be ready for drying. Due to time needed for drying it is not possible to glaze on single-day courses. Work will be fired and you will be contacted as soon as it is ready for collection/to arrange delivery.
Working as a small group, everyone will have plenty of one-to-one tuition and a chance to explore wheel-throwing. For more information and to book your place on Full Day Ceramics please CONTACT The Dovecote.
