By the end of the six week course

You will have learnt hand building techniques and portrait sculpture techniques, and will have made your very own pots and portrait profile sculpture.
This  course will give you the foundation for you to continue to make pottery.

You can choose a glaze from my collection, or a clear glaze to enhance your decorated pieces. You will glaze your own work.

Each piece is bisque fired in my kiln, glazed and fired again, to a temperature of around 1220 degrees centigrade.

Once your work is ready, ( 2-3 weeks) we will contact you and we can arrange collection from  studios, or we can arrange delivery, and this will be charged separately.
