CLASS: introduction to handbuilding 3 hours, three projects, timing to suit you.
This is a private class to introduce hand building skills via three projects. The price is for one [£110] or two people [£160], and held at my studio at a time to suit you, evenings or weekends are not a problem. (Four or six can also be taught in an additional space at my studio which I can book) This is one session and although we can get through in 2.5 hours, do allow towards three!
Enjoy quiet and close tuition alone or as a pair in my studio [larger groups in an additional space are also possible]: Dads & daughters, couples, sisters, hens, special occasions, you decide! You’ll use studio materials and tools and the workspace at my riverside studio near Woolwich. (Thamesside Studios, https://www.thames-sidestudios.co.uk) We’ll work together carefully to make three items that would make lovely gifts, or keep them and be proud of your work.
We’ll work with rolling slabs using templates, marking and 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.
🪴 Price includes the session, all materials & use of tools, finishing after bisque, & glazing*
🪴 Postage, collection or delivery to be arranged.
🪴 DBS checked & certified, public liability insured.
🪴 You tell me when you’d like to come & subject to my availability I can look at daytimes, evenings, or weekends to suit you. Please contact me before purchase if you need a very specific date or timing. All ages welcome but my workbench is 90cms high. Do let me know if standing for three hours is problematic, and I do have a seat you can rest in! I have run this class as a seated activity before for one if this is required.
🪴 Also available for more than two people at a time in a different space [which I hire & book] at Thamesside Studios, do let me know how many you're intending to book for and I can quote & check this availability.
🪴 *Cancellation: please give me as much notice as you can, I start prepping on this 7 days beforehand. Within 48 hours I will do my best to re-sell the place and refund but if this isn't possible I cannot refund, please gift your place to family or friend if you can*
I really look forward to sharing some clay joy! #ClayIsOurWay
