These sessions are for people who have enough experience to work independently in the studio as there wont be a tutor available to ask questions to. We hope to create a community of makers who will share ideas, support one another and delvelop their own practice.
You need to have a sound knowledge of working with clay and glazes and be prepared to research independently if you have any questions. For anyone who is new to Poynton Pottery and books onto these sessions we will ask to provide a short statement and some images of you work so we are confident you will be able to work unsupported.
The sessions will provide 4kg of white clay or 6 kg of buff clay and enough glaze for the amount of clay. If you make anything additional to this there will be a charge of £7 per kilo of Earthstone Clay and £6 per kilo for buff (this includes the cost of firing and glazing the extra work). If you are supplying your own clay we charge £1 per 100g of the finished fired weight.
We are limited to 3 wheels in the studio and so if you will require a wheel please email us so we can manage this.
The course dates are as follows (all week commencing):
