An introduction to ceramics for beginners where you will learn making and decorating techniques.
This is a private lesson designed for either one-to-one tuition or for groups of up to 6. During this 2 hour pottery workshop Baba (Barbara Arcieri) will teach you how to hand build pottery by demonstrating different techniques. There are many different techniques to hang building pottery, but Barbara will guide you through them all before you choose your favourite and create your own design. You will be able to create a small bowl or plate in the time that this class runs for. Then once you have built your pottery, Baba will guide you through how to decorate it, using various different tools and methods, to create your own beautiful bespoke design!
All the material will be provided on the day, so you don't need to bring anything!
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.

About your host, Baba Ceramics
Baba (Barbara Arcieri) is a London based Italian design architect addicted to ceramics.
The aim of her work is to reveal and enhance the natural and tactile aspect of clay an glazes through functional objects to use at the dinner table, around the house etc.
Baba designs simple spontaneous shapes which ask to be experienced and perceived through the sense of touch, finding beauty in their imperfections.
Wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting a bit messy, there will be aprons provided, but you may way to bring your own. Long nails don't work for pottery I'm afraid, it's better to have short, trimmed nails!
