Intro to Pottery

Sold Out

Mon 19th sept - 24th Oct
From 18:00

Join Ellen from the Kiln Creative for a block of 6 Intro to Pottery classes! Everyone is welcome as the class is suitable for total beginners looking for a new hobby as well as those with a little more pottery experience looking to improve their technique. Over the course you will learn how to make functional wares using both the pottery wheel and hand building techniques. There were will also be opportunity to try your hand at a range of different ceramic finishes. Come with ideas and inspiration in hand and Ellen will help you bring them to life!

The block of 6 classes cost £220 plus £1 booking fee. This cost is not inclusive of your materials (clay and glaze) or firing costs which are charged at £5/kg of clay at dry weight. To give you an idea, most pots made as a beginner will dry to around 200g which cost approx £1 per pot. This will be paid at the end of the class block directly to the tutor.

Please bring with you an apron and towel for drying your hands each week. To avoid making unwanted marks on your pottery, we recommend you keep your nails trimmed and any rings in your pockets.

6 Week Block | Monday evenings | 19th September til 24th October 2022 | 6 til 8.30pm

We had not planned to present a hybrid festival, however that changed when one of our main authors tested positive for Covid. I greatly appreciated how the team worked with us to pivot and present remotely in part, making full use of your enhanced video conferencing equipment. As a result, we were able to deliver quite complex events with several elements all showing on screen simultaneously. The audio-visual quality was excellent, and our audiences were delighted that these events could still go ahead, in spite of Covid. The author in question was really pleased that he could join us on screen and remarked that he had not been so well supported in this way at any other festival.
