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. You’ll create several pots during the workshop - learning as you go and adapting your technique as you discover the process.
Finished pots will then be hand-decorated using ‘slip' (coloured liquid clay) or underglaze paints. Carving tools will be available to carve patterns and textures into your design if you choose.
The work will then be dried and taken away for firing and glazing and will be ready for collection at a later date. All materials as well as the firing and glazing of the work are included in the workshop fee.
