This workshop will be held over two consecutive Saturdays (15 & 22 Feb), where we’ll be playing with porcelain on the first Saturday, using mixed media to create pieces and devising compositions with found objects. The porcelain pieces will be fired and on the second Saturday we’ll create and assemble playful and inventive mixed media pieces and compositions. .
The workshop is open to all levels – you can bring your own collection of beach and nature finds or make use of Elaine’s collection of materials.

Throwing or making with Porcelain – Workshop sessions

These sessions can’t currently be booked but gift vouchers for a later date can be bought through the online shop

I will update this page and my newsletter when workshop sessions become available again.

A session can be a full day (10am – 4p) or a half day (10am – 1pm or 2pm – 5pm)

The day’s session covers throwing with porcelain on the potter’s wheel; including basic techniques of clay preparation, centring on the wheel, throwing a cylinder. Follow-up or advanced sessions can include turning/trimming vessels and adding handles.

The sessions are designed as taster days for beginners and those new to porcelain, or for those wishing to improve their existing skills.

If throwing isn’t your thing, tailored hand-building sessions can be arranged, and they can include pinching, slab-building and coiling techniques in porcelain and stoneware.

Sessions are held at Elaine Bolt’s ceramic workshop at Atelier 51, Providence Place Brighton, East Sussex. Any finished pieces will be glazed and fired separately by Elaine at a later date, using simple glazes in use at the studio. Finished pieces can be collected 8-10 weeks after the workshop date.

Price includes all firing and glazing of the pieces you make.
