What you will do
2 hour workshop
This workshop uses an ancient technique called coiling to build a bowl in sections.
Everything is sculpted by hand: You'll start by using sausages of clay to build the basic bowl and blend it into a strong form. Once the shape of your dish is complete, the clay is dried until it is firm enough to carve, pare and polish into a finished dish.
Your teacher will demonstrate each of the stages and you'll spend the workshop building, sculpting and smoothing a breakfast bowl that you can used in your own home.
At the end of the workshop, you'll be able to choose one of the studio glazes for your bowl. The clay and glazes we use here are strong and durable, so your finished pieces can be used just like everything else in your kitchen and are dishwasher and microwave friendly.
Once left with us, your finished bowl will be carefully dried, glazed and twice fired. It will be ready in about 3 weeks time and you'll be able to choose between collecting it in person or having it delivered for an additional fee.

About your host, Odile Cadiot Ceramics
Odile studied chemistry, but fell in love with pottery after trying some evening classes in Farnham. After learning to throw and run a studio by working with other artists, she decided to set up her own space in West London which she runs with her partner Kieran.
Odile now works full time as a potter and pottery teacher. She's invented many of the tools, teaching aids and techniques they use at the studio and is constantly experimenting with new ideas and processes. . She also likes cooking and gardening because she can make the dishes...
Their studio is in a beautifully light and spacious little building, aptly named the Pottery Lane Art Centre, or PLACE, which works with the primary school next door to boost access to arts education and facilities. The centre also works to promote local artists with residencies, art markets and a shop on site selling only handmade and original art & crafts.
You'll have everything you need waiting for you at the studio, including refreshments, lockers for your possessions and room to change. It's best to wear clothes you don't mind getting clay on (it washes out without difficulty) and you'll find the project easier if your nails are well trimmed. This workshop usually takes two hours, but sometimes runs over as each group is able to work at their own pace.
