A PASSION FOR POTTERY

Pottery is therapy, a form of meditation

You cannot rush 

I would like to invite you to a pottery workshop at Misty Ceramics to create your own piece of ceramic art.

Pottery is one of the oldest and most widespread of the arts. I have long held a passion for ceramics and am delighted to be able to share my love of clay with you from my small home studio. Each object leaves individual marks from the making process, and when we create something from clay, we inevitably leave a little piece of ourselves in that object. It is a tactile, sensory experience, reconnecting with Mother Earth. My aim is for you to create a piece of art which you will take home and cherish.

This is a fun workshop in a bright home studio environment. No prior knowledge or art skills required.

 

CERAMICS TASTER

A half day workshop is an enjoyable introduction to clay. We will start with basic slab building or create a pinch pot, then learn how to apply surface pattern.

Duration:       3 hours (10am- 1pm)

£70 per person (includes 1 piece clear glazed. Should you wish to have more of your creations finished there is an additional charge of £5 per lb fired weight)

TILE MAKING

Learn how to construct and decorate your tile. The first week we will roll, cut, sculpt, carve or make texture onto your piece. It will then be bisque (high fired) ready to be glazed. The second session we will glaze your piece ready for the final firing. 

Duration: 2 hours, 2 sessions (10am-12pm or 1-3pm)

£80 per person (includes all materials for your tile)

NOTE: If the weather is good, I’m happy to reconvene to the garden and run an alfresco session!

-- GIFT VOUCHERS AVAILABLE --

The true perfection of a handmade pot comes from the impossibility of ever creating another piece exactly like it!
