stress for well-being, special occasions, you decide! You’ll use studio materials and tools and the studio workspace & we’ll work together carefully to make three homewares that would make lovely gifts, or to be proudly kept, robust enough for daily use.

We’ll work with this calming organic material with fundamental skills but whilst I explain the nuances of material & technique so as to achieve really professional results. You'll learn set up, cutting & construction using templates marking, stamping and building to make a dish and a mug. Then we’ll look at the sgraffito technique (scratching through a contrasting layer of slip) and make fast bold marks and shapes onto a plate. I will then fire & glaze your work to your instruction.
