“When people start my pottery classes, they often begin by saying that they’re not creative and not very good and making things. With my help and support they soon realise that they are creative and they can make something… their sense of achievement is incredible.”
In the pottery classes I aims to build confidence, encourage experimentation and create a space that is welcoming and inspiring. Anyone can attend the pottery classes, they are suitable for all abilities.
Beginners can follow a structured course, taking you through the various hand-building techniques and glazing. Worksheets are given at each stage. If you’ve done pottery before, or if you prefer, you’re free to work on your own ideas and develop your skills further. I also runs extra workshops in class time that are fun, inspirational and a bit quirky and she likes to find opportunities in the local area for community projects that the pottery class can participate in.
All the materials that you need are provided and are inclusive in the price of the pottery class (which you can pay weekly or termly). You’ll have the opportunity to use different types of clay (including stoneware, porcelain, paper clay and craft crank) and there are more than 30 glazes to choose from. You can also use underglaze, oxides and slip if preferred.
