    Play with clay.
    Let your hands to the thinking.

    During the 3 hour workshop you’ll create your own clay model or small sculpture. We will fire and glaze your final piece in a single colour.

    In this 3 hour modelling workshop we’ll introduce basic modelling techniques including tips to ensure your pieces are well joined to increase chances of kiln survival. We will also show you how to prepare your pieces so that they are kiln ready.

    You don’t have to be particularly arty – we help everyone find their mark.

    This intensive workshop aims to get you started 3D sculpture. Bring along some ideas or let us inspire you on the day. Ceramic fairies, pets, your family in clay, the royals, London buses, souvenir phone boxes…Your idea goes.

  • One body part at a time.

    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.

    A small charge applies to those wanting their work glazed.

  • 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. Prior to the model's arrival the tutor will commence with a short demonstration on how to build the clay model with firing in mind ( so as not to explode in the kiln) and will discuss the type of clay being used to negate the use of an armature. The tutor will then offer support and advise throughout the clay modelling from life session. Pieces will be dried out completely and then fired ready for collection approximately 4-6 weeks later. Final pieces can be kept indoors or outdoors. Some life drawing experience is desirable though not totally essential. Group size is approximately 10-12 people max.

    Tile making, carving and glazing

     

    CREATE YOUR OWN CONTEMPORARY RELIEF
    A 2 x 2 hour  workshop taken over consecutive weekends

    In the first workshop we'll design and create the 3 dimensional foundation for our relief. If you're stuck for ideas we'll have some simple designs for you to follow. The following week, at leather hard stage you'll be ready to carve into our clay tile. We'll show you carving techniques beforehand and impart some important health and safety information. Of course all sorts of things can go wrong. You might start with a block of clay and end up with a spec of dust but its the taking part that counts. If however things go right we'll fire and glaze your final tile making it a modern centrepiece. Our aim is to prevent over enthusiasm from total obliteration in order that each person at least as one tile that can act as a souvenir of this journey into sculpture.

    During the process you'll learn and practice hand carving techniques (albeit with clay rather than stone). You can bring some ideas or we can inspire you on the day. We've plenty of ideas to help the art petrified – besides the modern relief need not be so serious .

    To make this relief fit for the modern home we'll fire and glaze your final pieces and dip them with clear glaze – making them completely waterproof fit for the kitchen, bathroom or garden.
