Make E11 – Spring 2016

Roll up your sleeves & get your hands in some mud – this Spring we’re going to be working in wet clay using simple hand-building techniques.

First workshop – 15th March: make a lidded Easter pot with pretty sprigs and a pulled handle.

How it works

small lidded pots (unglazed)

I’ll teach you step-by-step how to make an object that I’ll dry, fire and glaze for you to pick up.

Each object will be a small domestic item based on the seasonal theme – like a vase or lidded pot. For Easter & Spring it’s going to get flowery!

Clay will be provided pre-rolled so the messy prep is already done for you & we can focus on building.  You’ll be able to make at least one object in the session and then you can make more / experiment a bit.

Do I need to bring anything?

No, for a first session just turn up and we’ll take it from there.

Do I need an art background?

Not at all; complete beginners, rusty returners and awe-inspiring creatives alike are welcome, and I’m confident the techniques provided will enable you to produce pieces you can be proud of.

How messy will it get?

Not very – as the clay is pre-rolled it’s pretty clean to handle.  You don’t need an apron but don’t wear anything too smart.
