What you will do
This taster session is a great way to start your first experience working with Clay!
You will learn basic throwing techniques from cylinders to bowls. 3-4 pieces will be selected at the end of the class for Melisa to finish. After this session, Melisa will trim, glaze and fire your pieces which may take another 3-4weeks.
Your pieces will go through 2 firings. The first firing will reach 1000 degrees and the second will reach 1260 degrees in Melisa's electric Kiln.
Please note that this session may be shared with one other pupil (Melisa has 2 wheels in her studio). This is a great way to share your experience with another budding potter!
All materials, glazes, kiln fire are included within this price.

About your host, Melisa Dora
Melisa Dora is a ceramic artist specialising in beautiful and versatile hand-thrown tableware, glazed in a fusion of vibrant and subtle colour combinations.
After graduating with a first class degree in ceramics and wood, Melisa went on to set up her own ceramics studio , working on a variety of tableware collections and freelance commissions for clients. She also teaches ceramic workshops in her London studio and enjoys passing on her own expertise and passion for making beautiful objects by hand. This has in turn informed her own professional development.
Melisa creates complementary coloured glazes, in a variety of textured and smooth finishes, which she mixes herself in her studio. These are layered onto simple forms to create crystalised surfaces and geometric patterns.
Melisa offers one to one and group sessions on the pottery wheel and handbuilding.
Please bring your own Apron or wear suitable clothing you don't mind getting mucky! Please make sure your nails are cut short as this may interfere with the clay.
All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
