A session about making pots by hand -pinching, coiling, building, rolling, pressing, decorating - to relax, have fun, create, celebrate.

Coil Workshop (up to 4 people only)
Saturday 16 June 11.00-13.15
Wednesday 20 June  10.45-13.00 and 18.30-20.45

We will begin the session with an introduction to materials, tools and technique. During a short demonstration I will show you how to regulate pressure to roll even coils and how to construct your pot by fixing coils together. We will focus on building one large or two smaller pieces, choosing between a pot with a narrow neck or a bottle.

In addition to coiling you will also explore ways to developing surfaces through pressing, carving and slip (liquid clay) application.
