During 5 weeks, every monday, from 7pm till 9pm, Sinead will teach you how to hand craft your own tableware.

You will be guided through a variety of hand building techniques including pinching, coiling, press moulding and slab building. After experimenting with these techniques, you will build your own table ware set. This will consist of something to eat off, a vessel to drink from, an item to decorate your table e.g. a vase or candle holder and two other small dining items e.g. serving spoons or salt and pepper holders, five items in total. In the final class you will glaze your pieces and they will be ready for collection the following week at the studio.

Includes: Fully tutored classes, all materials, firings and your very own unique table ware set.

Please come to the course with at least four reference photos regarding your tableware set and other ideas you may have. These may include ideas about form and shape, colour, pattern, texture or simply images that inspire you. I will be able to speak to you individually about realizing your creative ideas and what is attainable.
