Family Pinch Pots Workshop

  • Surrey Art School Surrey Art School Dorking United Kingdom (map)

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.

This is a lovely activity to sit and do together and can be adapted to suit both young learners and adults. You can carve designs into your pots and add brightly coloured slip to decorate the final vessels!

Jo Hannah is an experienced 'maker' whose creative practice with clay explores the beauty of natural materials - undergoing state changes  through firing and becoming beautiful, robust rustic pieces made or raised by a gentle hand. Jo is a great believer in the therapeutic qualities of working with clay and her workshops are calm and mindful.
