Family Pinch Pots Workshop

Workshop date: Thursday 25th October 2018

Workshop time: 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Workshop level: Beginners

Workshop Location: Surrey Art School, The Old Dairy, RH5 5DL

Tutor: Jo Hannah

Come and make time to make together with our lovely Family Ceramics Workshop led by Jo Hannah.

In this family friendly workshop you will learn how to form a pot using the simplest of ceramic techniques, ‘pinching’. This technique is ideal for anyone who is new to clay and would like a gentle introduction to the medium.

Using only a ball of clay and your hands, you will be shown the process of forming a simple pot. Create one or several pots during the workshop, depending on your speed and the size of the pot.  We'll then decorate your pots with ‘slip' (coloured liquid clay) or underglaze paints. Carving tools will be available to carve patterns into the clay.

This is a lovely activity to sit and do together and can be adapted to suit both young learners and adults.

All materials are included in the price of the workshop, including the glazing and firing of the work.

You will be able to collect your finished work at a later date and you will be informed when it is ready for collection from Surrey Art School.
