Let us make your Monday something to look forward too with this five-week introduction to ceramics course, the perfect way to relax and ease into your week.
The course will run on 5 consecutive Monday evenings from April 1st till April 29th 2019, from 7 pm till 9 pm.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Each week you will be guided through a different technique to build a piece of you tableware set. In the first week you will make some small dining items e.g. serving spoons or salt and pepper holders just to get a feel for the material. In the following weeks you will construct your tableware set. This will consist of something to eat off, a vessel to drink from and an item to decorate your table e.g. a vase or candle holder. In the fourth week you can re visit a technique you enjoyed and make a duplicate item of your choice for a friend or partner. You will have 6 items in total, 4 medium sized pieces and 2 smaller ones. In the final class you will glaze your pieces and there will be a selection of glazes for you to choose from.
Fully tutored classes, all materials, glazes, firings and your very own unique table ware set.

In about 3 weeks your items will be ready for collection. We will notify you by email and you can swing by the studio to collect your pieces..
Unfortunately once we have notified you, we can not keep items for longer than two weeks due to limited storage.
Unfortunately we must ask that you give us at least 2 weeks notice if you need to cancel or move your session. If you move your booking to a different date we can only move your booking once.
If you prefer, you can gift your session to a lucky friend. You must email us and let us know the details of the person coming in your place so we dont get mixed up! :)
