Çfarë do të bësh

I specialise in slipware pottery thrown on a potters wheel (of which there are 4). The pots are decorated with the coloured liquid clay (slip) that provides a wonderful fluid palette to create a wide range of decorative styles.

The great benefit of this course is that by using slips we are able to make and decorate the pots in the same lesson as the pots are decorated in their raw, unfired state. You therefore don't need to return to decorate the pots at another lesson, unless you want to of course!

The one-off lesson is suitable for adult absolute beginners as well as those revisiting skills that may have got rusty. If you have a particular project you want to try out (e.g. flower pot, mug, jug) then we will discuss how you can achieve that in the time available but feel free to let me know beforehand with ideas / pictures.

Pottery is a very broad subject and it can sometimes be difficult to know where to start, but if you just want to “have a go at pottery” then we can generally fit in a go at throwing some pots of different styles / forms.

The aim will be to have made at least one decorated pot you can either take home (in raw clay state) at the end of the lesson or wait for it to be fired (approx. 3 weeks) for collection or posted at cost.
Other things to note
Clay can be a messy business!
I have aprons and towels but you may want to consider the following:
• Clothes - the oldest you have. We’ll be using earthenware clay which is quite unforgiving on clothing.
• Nails - best if cut but not a real issue.

I have 25 years of experience in ceramics in its various formats (including hand building and throwing on a potters wheel) and have taught for 10 years. I love sharing the experience of handling clay by teaching small classes from my workshop which is situated next to my wife's fused glass studio where she also runs classes.

The lesson takes place in a fully functioning, professional pottery studio based at the end of my garden. This is situated next to my wife's fused glass studio where she also runs classes. If you'd like to do both or split a class with a group feel free to drop me a message.

As absolute novices our expectations to produce anything worthwhile were low, to say the least. Bingo. Three pretty bowls. Chris is a welcoming and patient tutor and the experience was a delight from beginning to end. Give it a go. You will love it!

For our first experience with a potters wheel, Chris was a fantastic teacher with a wealth of knowledge. Very patient and friendly. We both loved making the pots, decorating them and learning about the process. We would go again if we were in the area. Workshop very well maintained and Health and Safety at the forefront of all activities, without impacting the enjoyment. Would recommend to anyone who likes to be creative and learn a new skill.

We really enjoyed our pottery experience. Chris was a fantastic teacher and we were amazed at what we managed to produce in a relatively short time. We are looking forward to receiving our finished pots in the post to show off to friends and family!

This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and it honestly lived up to everything I hoped it would be and more. So much fun!!! Chris explains everything perfectly and he was so patient with us as first timers. Can’t wait to see our pottery in our home! We will definitely be back and we cannot recommend this experience enough!
