Pottery courses, tasters and events.
In light of the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus, we have sadly had to close our doors for the time being. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the ceramic process, it is impossible to avoid close contact and the reuse of materials/tools in the studio. In order to guarantee the health and safety of our students, all classes have been postponed until further notice.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or wish to be added to the waiting list for the next round of workshops (which will be announced as soon as the current situation has calmed down).
As a small independent business, this is an extremely difficult time for us and your support will be greatly appreciated.
Stay safe and take care!
Wednesday Evening Pottery Course | £180
8 weeks, 6:30pm-9pm, 8th Jan-26th Feb
A comprehensive 8-week pottery course, during which, you will be guided through every step involved in making a finished ceramic piece – from wedging clay to applying glazes. We will cover some fundamental theory and focus on practicing different techniques for both throwing on the wheel and handbuilding. You will have the chance to explore making a variety of shapes such as plant pots, cups, handled mugs and jugs, plates, bowls, and many others.
The course takes place in our new studio in the Jewellery Quarter and is suitable for adults who are starting out on their clay journey as well as intermediate makers who would like to improve their skills. In order to allow enough one-to-one tuition, the group size is capped at 8 students.
Marbled Nestling Plates Course | £90
3 weeks, Tuesday 6:30pm-9pm
10th March-24th March
Every clay bears a different story. And what better way to tell a story than over a meal served on a set of plates that you’ve made yourself?
This workshop will take you on an exploration of colour and texture within ceramics as you learn how to mix your own unique blend of clay and create marbled effects. We will then use the process of slab building over plaster moulds to make a set of three nestling plates – dinner, side, and dessert – showcasing the swirly patterns of your clay canvas. The last session will introduce you to the art of glazing in order to finalise your pieces, making them functional and food-safe.

The session and how to preapre
Throwing is a messy business, remember to bring an apron and trim long nails as they can get in the way of your creative expression. There are more subsequent stages before a pot is fully finished. If you would like to learn about trimming, slip decoration, glazing, and firing you can book a further session. Otherwise, any work that you complete during the taster will be glazed/fired for you and be ready for collection in a month’s time.
