NEXT DATES TO BE CONFIRMED

 

Workshop 305 on Obby 


Pottery and Mosaic Evening Classes at Workshop 305

These workshops are open to everyone whether experienced or not.

Pottery - If pottery is new to you over the 6-8 week duration of the workshop you will be shown the basic techniques for working with clay - this will include making simple thumb-pots, coil building, tile making and throwing on the wheel. Once you have decorated and glazed your work you will have the experience to further develop your skills and use more complex techniques like clay slab construction, using plaster moulds and exploring possible combinations of the different construction techniques. To this end we have a slab-rolling machine for preparing large slabs of clay - we also have a height-adjusting potter's wheel which is suitable for wheelchair users.

Mosaic - We have a large range of glass or home-made tiles available for you to create and decorate a piece of your choice - it could be a mirror frame, a mosaic panel, a table top, a house-number or maybe a 3-dimensional object that you've found and want to decorate - the choice is yours! Another option is to make your own tiles and/or clay models to include in your own personal design. Mosaic is absorbing but can be quite time demanding and this will also vary according to the type of tile and technique that you use - we will advise you regarding whether your choice is likely to be achievable in the given time. First-timers should consider making a smaller item in the first instance.
