THE REAL DEAL CERAMIC WORKSHOP
This 3 hour short course introduces you to basic handbuild ceramic techniques. During the session you can work on your own small bowl, cup, vase or trinket box; we’ll teach simple slabbing and coil building techniques as well as basic surface decoration. We use lead free glazes and stoneware clay which means your final piece will be food safe, oven proof, dishwater proof, microwave proof – but not idiot proof. If you drop it it may smash!
Your best two pieces will then be fired and glazed in a colour of your choice (subject to variations in the glaze itself), and should be available for collection approximately 4 weeks later. We keep pieces for up to 3 months after notification i.e. 4 months after the workshop date. A fun class suitable for children and adults.
WHAT TO WEAR Guests don’t generally get that messy and clay does dust off but do feel free to bring an old shirt to protect your clothes.
Please note your ceramic pieces will take up to 4 weeks to fire and glaze. Occasionally pots don’t survive but where potscrack we offer a piece or two that haven’t been claimed after some time.
