Wednesday One Offs

The studio is a great place to get creative and with the ongoing success of the Saturday One Offs we have devised a range of mid-week short courses with a variety of specific goals. Wednesday One Offs focus on a mix of functional and sculptural hand built pieces. The classes have been created so you can either book one class at a time or you can complete the 6 week block. You will be guided through each session by our talented teaching artist Elen Bowen. These classes are great fun and your creations will be fired and glazed for you and ready to collect after 3 weeks.  One-off workshops are aimed at complete beginners, but those with more experience are welcome.

Classes will run every Wednesday at 7pm-9pm

Class Details

Each lesson will start with clay preparation, followed by a demonstration by the tutor. You will then have time to practice what has been demonstrated and guidance will be offered where needed. If you need a break, the kettle is always on with tea and coffee in abundance so please do help yourselves...or ask the tutor to make a brew! 

Skills you will learn:

  • Clay preparation.

  • Slab rolling and compression.

  • Working to a template.

  • Using an Extruder.

  • Coil building.

  • Pinch pot technique.

  • Surface textures and detailing.

  • Fettling and preparation for firing.

Working with clay can be messy. We supply aprons but it is probably best if you come to the classes in clothes and footwear you don't mind getting dirty. No watches or jewellery to be worn and you may want to tie your hair back in preparation. 

You can book your place right away by selecting from the drop down options above, and selecting the full six week course or the individual workshop. Please note the course must be paid for in full before attending. If you miss a class this may be made up depending on available space. All work is fired and glazed and will be ready to collect two-three weeks after the completion of your course. All hand built creations will be glazed, colours may vary depending on availability. If you would like to glaze your pieces yourself this can be done by booking onto one of our glazing sessions.
