I am now offering in person workshops in a gazebo in the garden or in my open sided pottery. Workshops offer the opportunity to learn a new skill and make something to treasure either for yourself, your home or to give as a gift. 

Sessions are eitherfor  3 hours  (9:30 - 12:30) or a full day (9:30 - 4:30). 

All materials and firings are included, with as many refreshments as needed. 

A packed lunch is required for  full day sessions. 

All sessions adhere to Covid regulations. 

 

 

  • Learning to throw pots on the wheel​​​​​​​

Great for beginners or improvers. I will take you through all the stages of throwing a pot - everyone can do it. You'll make 2 or 3 pots in a 3 hour session or you could make 4 or 5 pots and have the option of adding some coloured decoration in the full day option. 

In previous sessions students have made hot chocolate mugs, bowls and vases. 

 

There's such a joy in using your own handmade pots - I'd love to teach you how to make yours and share this passion. 

Available as a 3 hour (9:30 - 12:30) or full day experience (9:30 - 4:40) 

Can be booked as a 1: 1 session or 1:2 session - come with a fireind for a fun session

20% discounts for 2nd person.  

 

  • Making a wall piece

In this session we work together to create a beautiful wall piece of your favourite landscape or other subject matter. 

You will learn three techniques for making textures in porcelain, sgraffito, carving and applying slip. Armed with this knowledge you will then roll out a porcelain tile and recreate your design onto the porcelain. Stains are used to give colour and glaze can be applied to depict water or give a sheen before firing in the kiln. Wall pieces give a creative and stylish way to have a picture of a treasured place and make great gifts. Mounting and framing service available. The tiles can also be made into personalised House name plates.  

Available as a 3 hour (9:30 - 12:30) or full day experience (9:30 - 4:40) 

Can be booked as a 1: 1 session or in a small group. 

 

  • Hand building session

​​​​​​​For those who would like to learn how to model an animal or perhaps make a pair of candle holders or a set of plates - hand building sessions are ideal. Just send me an email with an idea of what you'd like to make and I'll figure out a way to make it happen.
