If you’re expecting a scene from Ghost,
then buy the DVD.
But If you’re looking for real wheel throwing pottery lessons, excellent tuition and small group sizes then book a Go Create class. We can’t promise it will be easy: there are born naturals and plodders, like myself. But we can promise what you learn will pull up your skills and centre your understanding without costing a wedge of money.
Want to create?
Want to play?
This amazing workshop gets you trialling both hand build ceramics and wheel thrown pottery in the same morning orafternoon. This popular format includes the content of our introduction to handbuild ceramics plus a 15 minute talk/demo and 20 minutes one-to-one guidance on the wheel from a highly experienced potter/contemporary practitioner.
Stay outdoors late into the evening
With mosaic glass lanterns for your garden
Transform jam jars into magical lanterns using cut pieces of coloured glass. During this workshop we’ll use a 7cm x 6cm glass to ensure you complete and grout the piece within the time (the emphasis being on safety). We’ll show you how to cut glass and the tools and equipment needed. You’ll also learn about adhesives and also how to grout and polish your finished piece.
There’s nothing more beautiful than watching flickering candle light through tea lights/lanterns : just perfect for those for darker autumn nights and festive occasions.
Looking to make home made gifts
Or for a little self-pampering?
In true Go Create style our aim is to create a fun and informative workshop and this one is no exception. We’re sure you’ll be delighted with both the content and take-home products: another beautiful course from Go Create.
Get stuck in.
Be a part of art.
This is a hands-on course that will get you exploring form, materials and processes from the start as a means of sculptural expression. It assumes no previous knowledge of working with sculpture. As well as offering practical experience, we’ll provide an overview of traditional and contemporary sculpture to build a growing appreciation.
An introduction to porcelain
Experience the delicate feel of porcelain and learn how to build textured vessels or tea lights which complement its properties. We’ll showcase some contemporary approaches to help inspire your own original designs. We’ll then fire and glaze your best 2 pieces.
Create with clay
We’ll show you how
Working from a model and expressing through clay. People of all abilities including newcomers welcome. The aim of the workshop is to create something with a resemblance to the human figure – whether abstract or vaguely representative. Experts will be on hand for those requiring guidance and support – and to inspire a range of different possibilities. Our tutors will commence with a short demonstration on how to start and some basic tips for those wishing final works to be fired (please note that there is an additional charge for fired work)
You’re welcome to start with some preliminary sketches prior to work in clay or if you’re feeling confident then we’re happy for you to dive straight into the clay – as long as you wash later.
If you like this course you may also like our week long modelling from life courses. We also thoroughly recommend life drawing for those wishing to take this art form further.
Learn the advanced technique of creating candles which preserve and display the beauty of real flowers, berries or leaves just beneath the outer layer of wax for permanence. Although this is an advanced technique we take absolute beginners through a candle making introduction and series of exercises which leads up to the creation of this table centrepiece so that the choice of wax type, safety aspects and processes involved are fully understood and learnt. Therefore this course is suitable for both beginners and intermediate candlemakers. We also serve tea and cake half-way through the workshop in our vintage floral tea ware just to make this a truly elegant occasion.
This is a fun, short workshop – you don’t have to be particularly interested in mosaics but simply looking for a novel experience and to take home some baubles – we’ll serve mulled wine and mince pies on arrival just to get everyone in the festive spirit.
For the more serious, aspiring mosaic artist, you’ll learn how to tackle 3D mosaics – about the adhesives needed, grout colour and special considerations for external mosaics.
