This Friday Evening pottery class offers you the opportunity to come along to our beautiful basement studio in Moseley School of Art, and have a play with clay.
If you are brand new to clay, or just want to develop your skills, then you are welcome in this class.
In this class you will cover many aspects of hand building and some wheel work. This course is student led, and you will be supported throughout your journey with clay
You will cover various surface decoration techniques, including using coloured slips and glazes.
During this course, students will also learn “good studio practice”.
This six week course starts on Friday 29th April, and will take place every Friday afternoon from 7.00-9.30pm, on the following dates:
Please remember Pottery can be a messy business.
Dress for outdoor play, and please bring an old hand towel and apron (preferably wipeable). We expect these to be taken home and cleaned for each session.
Long nails are a problem, particularly when throwing on the potters wheel. Trim them before your lessons. Thank you.
The last 20 minutes of each session are dedicated to cleaning up.
We take everyone’s health and safety very seriously!
Anyone in self-isolation or with COVID-19 symptoms must NOT visit the studio. Under any circumstances.
We may take your temperature, on arrival
The heated studio has large windows, that will be open, and there will be an extractor fan on.

With demand at a peak for pottery courses, we are delighted that John Chamberlain has decided to teach on Friday Evenings, this Summer term at Sundragon!
