8-week Monday Evening Pottery Class | 6:30pm-9:00pm, 9th Sep-28th Oct

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 various techniques for both throwing on the wheel and handbuilding:

Week 1: Clay preparation + handbuilding pinch pots and coiling
Week 2 & 3: Throwing on the wheel + handbuilding with slabs
Week 4 & 5: Trimming on the wheel + making with plaster moulds
Week 6 & 7: Practice + working on more complex projects
Week 8: Glazing

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.

Working with clay is a messy business, remember to bring an apron and trim long nails as they can get in the way of your creative expression. All materials and the firing of up to 5 pots are included in the course price. Any additional pots you would like fired will be charged at £4 per kilogram of clay. Please bear in mind that it could take up to a month after the end of the course for your pots to go through the final glaze kiln before you can collect them.

Care

All Pavlov pots are made for daily use. With the exception of earthenware pieces, they can be safely used in microwaves and dishwashers, though care should be taken. Be mindful that putting your pots through rapid and sudden changes in temperature is likely to cause thermal shock damage – for example, avoid moving them straight from the fridge into the microwave or vice versa.

Return requests would be accepted within 7 days of delivery; although bear in mind that I can only provide a refund for the item cost. Any pots that you no longer wish to keep should be posted back adequately packaged and in their original condition.
