CLASSES 2018

"Find your inner potter" 

If you have always wanted to have a go at pottery Ann is offering beginner (or not quite) classes for adults in her Melton, Woodbridge studio this nov/dec. Classes will be limited to 5 students with a choice of tuesday or saturday.

Making things in clay is a multi step process.  First you use the soft clay to make your shape. Then you refine your work at the semi dry stage.  Clay then takes a few days to be fully dried and ready for 'bisque' firing to around 1000 degrees C which turns the clay from organic to ceramic. The bisqued clay can then be painted, glazed or decorated before it is fired to a higher temperature, which makes the finished work hard and non-porous.

Subject to individual demand we will cover these core making skills:  

 

HAND BUILDING - coiling, pinching, slabbing, using plaster moulds, found moulds

THROWING ON THE WHEEL and TURNING leather hard clay.

SCULPTING IN CLAY making non-functional forms. How to achieve volume without collapse or explosion!

FINISHING -  PAINTING and GLAZING  achieve the surface you desire.  

DECORATING - with slip, glaze, underglazes, oxides, ceramic crayons, ceramic wax crayons.  Pressed surfaces, relief surfaces, resist with paper or wax etc.
