2.5 hour workshop
Take a leap of inspiration and create something that is truly you, with this hand-building workshop.
Playing with colour, shape and texture, pushing your ideas to create something functional and/or purely decorative out of clay.
This workshop will provide you with basic hand-building techniques (slab building, pinch, coiling), that give you the confidence to go ahead and create your desired piece/s. It's all about being relaxed and finding your happy place.
This workshops main focus is about pushing the boundaries of traditional forms/pieces. We explore alternative colours, shapes and textures, adding a special twist to make it all the more unique and adventurous.
The session is split into 2 parts.
Part 1 - We dive into the basics of creating a simple hand-built form with a short demo and chat.
Optional - Taking inspiration from the ideas you will have collected (a little light homework prior to attending the 1st session, details provided in the confirmation email), then the building begins.
Part 2 - Will be spent glazing your wonderful greenware work using underglazes.
This is a 2.5hr session, once a week on Wednesdays. Depending on class sizes, there will be 1 or 2 hand-building tutors on-hand so we can ensure personal and individual guidance is given throughout.
All clay, tools, underglazes are provided and included in the fee. You are welcome to make as many pieces, as the time provides. Please note 1 piece you'd like to keep is included in the fee. Any additional pieces you'd like to keep incur a £3 (per piece) charge.
*Workshops will be updated on a monthly basis. Please subscibe to keep up to date with upcoming workshops.

About your host, Stuff and Fings | Ceramics Workshops
'Stuff and Fings' was born out of Mandisa's love of tinkering with, well, 'Stuff and Fings'. Playing with textures and shapes, art and design, experimentation and fun are at the core of all things, 'Stuff and Fings'.
Having studied 'Surface Pattern Design' at Jacob Kramer college in Leeds, clay was never a medium she'd ever seriously considered, until recently. As a mother (to a now 7yr old), looking for something new to get her teeth into and to fit around the busy school schedule. She absolutely fell in love with clay on her first pottery taster workshop.
Ever since then, it's been full steam ahead. As a member of 'Cernamic Studio' which has provided Mandisa with the space to develop and grow, enjoying the freedom of the endless possibilities hand-building with clay opens up. The journey continues...it's the gift that keeps on giving! Now she is able to help those who would like to take their first endeavour in to working adventurously with clay.
Come dressed in something comfortable, that you don't mind getting a little bit of clay on. The venue has wheelchair/pushchair access. Free 4hr parking in Southwark park, less than 5 min walk to the workshop. Bermondsey underground station, less than 5min walk to the workshop.
