What you will do

2.5 hour workshop

Daytime

This course is ideal for people who would like to learn the process of ceramics and the many techniques of working with it in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. From concept to completion, you will learn the different techniques available to you and why you would choose one method over another to achieve the desired result, turning raw clay material into your own unique piece. You will also learn about the pottery workshop, what equipment you need and how to use it, essential health and safety and how to set up your own facilities in a shed, garage, workshop or spare room.

From complete beginners to those who are more experienced we at Potten Farm welcome all. Tea, coffee, fresh cake and biscuits are provided on the day and if you are joining us for our evening class then you can look forward to a glass or two of local wine or beer (but please bring your own chauffeur).

Each week you will learn about types of clay and a different process of making such as: • coiling– building shapes from hand-rolled ‘snakes’ of clay • slab-building – building shapes from rolled out ‘slabs’ of clay • pinching – using hands to shape clay • styles of surface decoration - from underglazes to texture and glaze application

Work will be fired and you will be able to learn about the glazing and firing process. You will be able to create your own finished pieces using any of the above techniques and the tutor will ensure that you know how to work safely in a workshop environment.

By the end of the course you will have a range of ceramic pieces of your own design and enough knowledge of how to make pottery independently if you wish to continue beyond the basic techniques.

Please note that during our daytime classes children under 5 come free.

Did you know?

Ceramics are generally made by taking mixtures of clay, earthen elements, powders, and water and shaping them into desired forms. Once the ceramic has been shaped, it is fired in a high temperature oven known as a kiln. Often, ceramics are covered in decorative, waterproof, paint-like substances known as glaze.
