Clay Days

Next Dates: Tues 19th / Thurs 21st December 2017

Clay Day workshops are fun, dynamic 2 hour studio sessions taught by our masterful tutor Lindsay. They are a great way to entertain children or grandchildren during the school holidays, and the perfect thing to do if you're holidaying in Dorset and want to do something really fun! Older children can be left unattended but younger children may need adult supervision.

After a brief introduction to all the tools and techniques followed by a demonstration laying down the basics of making pots on the wheel, you'll get to turn a ball of clay into your own amazingly shaped creation and then paint it while it's spinning on the wheel- Lindsay has perfected this painting technique through his own experiments with clay and the results are stunning!

When you're not on the wheel you'll be rummaging through our extensive pile of tools, cutters, stamps and paints crafting another ball of clay into marvellous multicoloured masterpieces at the table- tiles, sculptures, creatures, coil pots, the possibilities are endless!

You'll then leave your pieces with us to dry, fire, glaze, and fire again and we'll contact you in 6-8 weeks time to let you know that they're ready to collect.

If you're visiting us from afar we can post your works of art to your home for £15.
