Service Description

Your tutor Giovi is a local potter who specialises in beautiful hand built pots . The aim of the workshop is to have fun exploring the tactile and creative possibilities of clay. Pottery making is stimulating and rewarding and has the added benefit of relaxing and focusing the mind. I wish to create a non judgemental atmosphere where everyone's work is valued. In this introduction to pottery, you will learn how to make objects by using two of the key handbuilding techniques: 1. Pinch pot method-familiarise yourself with pottery by starting from a ball of clay and transforming it into various shapes, bowl/cup bird. 2. Coiling-slowly building a cylindrical shape out of rolled coils and making a plant pot, pencil holder or tea lantern. For these ancient techniques, only your hands and simple tools are needed. Once you have mastered these skills, you will be able to develop them further in your own time. No previous experience necessary. We will bisque fire in the kiln, three of your favourite pieces, which you can collect from Mud and Wool at a later date. Please bring an apron and wear old clothes. Teas and coffees will be provided
