Clay Modelling £20
Super fun and themed hand modelling ‘makes’ for kids and grown-ups. Projects change every three months providing a unique and creative activity for families in the school holidays – including 1/2 term. Price includes tuition, materials and firing.
Current Theme: ‘Leaf Peeping!’ Visitors to the Pottery during September, October and November will have the opportunity to make a clay leaf tile painted in a riot of Autumnal colour. You’ll leave your creation with us to fire and glaze for approx. one month, after which it will be available for collection from the Pottery. Don’t worry if you cant make the return trip, we’ll package and post your pottery masterpiece for an additional £5.
An ideal opportunity for aspiring young potters to work with professional, ceramic artists.
Experience ‘hands on’ real clay and an exciting variety of hand modelling making techniques.
Small friendly groups ensure maximum attention from our experienced staff, always on hand to guide and offer advice.
Big emphasis on having fun and learning via enjoyment.
Fantastic fired results every time. Your clay masterpiece will be fired and glazed, spending four days in the kiln. You’ll be totally amazed at the professional, ceramic quality of your creative efforts when they emerge from the fire!
How it works:
On arrival you will be guaranteed a warm welcome and a nice complimentary cuppa or glass of squash. You’ll then meet your fellow pottery participants. (Small friendly groups ensure maximum one to one attention.) Once you’ve all had the chance to get to know each other a little better, you’ll settle down to watch a demonstration from your designated professional potter. Then it’s down to business.
You’ll each be given a lump of clay to make your sculpture and encouraged to work independently, but don’t worry, your professional potter will be close at hand to offer guidance and advice if you get a bit stuck.
Once all members of your group have a ‘creation’ to show for their efforts, you’ll have the opportunity to paint your freshly made masterpiece in coloured under-glazes.
Your creation will need to dry before it’s fired and glazed. This process takes about a month, after which your fabulous ceramic item will be ready for collection from the Pottery. P+P can be arranged at £5 per item.
Please allow 1.5hrs for the whole experience.
