I offer taster sessions in throwing with porcelain or hand-building techniques at my Brighton workshop. These are not available to book in the diary at the moment, but you can buy a voucher as a gift or something for yourself and we can fix a date when this becomes available again.
Workshops can be for a half day (10am – 1pm or 2pm – 5pm) or a full day (10am – 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.
Tailored hand-building sessions 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.
Learn to throw and build with clay or improve your making skills at my Brighton workshop. Buy a voucher for yourself or as a gift, for when things get back to normal…!
