  • Master sculptors trained on a small scale often starting with parts of the face. Working in that tradition before tackling the full head in a separate class, learn classical sculpting skills: working the clay, how to measure, use equipment, observe and criticize your efforts. Your finished work whether that be a nose, ear, lips or eye will be a momento like no other. During this taster session we’ll be working from plaster cast body parts – cast from real morals.

    Book and drop into a 2 hour clay session

    This is the perfect workshop for anyone wishing to dip in and out of clay sessions without committing to a weekly class. Booking is essential just to ensure we have enough space – but we don’t mind if you book in just prior to the workshop if there are enough spaces – meaning you can book in and pop in if you know you can leave the office in time!

    Please note there is a £5/lb charge for firing and glazing of items. If you wish to paint your bisque items you will also need to book another session to complete the painting then. We then need to fire the pieces again.

  • Ceramics doesn’t get much hotter than this!

    We’ll start the day with a some clay hand building to gently warm us into the clay mood. At mid-day we’ll then paint some pre-made ceramic bisque pieces ready for raku glaze firing in the afternoon – think ceramic cafe with a super hot twist.  Pieces will be packed into the outdoor gas fired kiln and during lunch that’s when we really turn up the heat (to 1100 degrees). After lunch pieces are then unloaded into sawdust bins to to restrict oxygen and the raku effect takes form. There will be a few casualties along the way – pieces we mean. Participants then polish off any surviving pieces to reveal the magical effect of raku.
    This is a magical day – you don’t even have to be a beginner or particularly into ceramics to enjoy this workshop – just book for the experience.
