We are planning to open the studio in August 2020. This is Government Advice permitting and us finishing the updating of the studio.
You will have two very experienced tutors available both with over 20 years of experience in Ceramics and clay work.
Our Classes this year will be on a Monday (weekly) and there will be the ability to book a 3-hour session which will be £10, or you could save £10 and book four consecutive sessions for £30. This is for the use of the facilities in the studio use of glazes and paints (speciality glazes will be at an extra cost) and firing of your piece and continued support and tuition from an experienced tutor in ceramics and clay and on tap tea and coffee, you can also bring nibbles, wine or send out for supper if you wish.
Bisque cost is from £3 onwards depending on the size of the piece and if you make anything from clay this will also be costed at the bisque price which is nearest to the size of whatever you are making. We have a wide variety of slip cast or handmade bisque made on the wheel by Rachel.
We also have 4 (and 1 portable) pottery wheels which can be booked for a lesson during your class at a reduced price of £20 (normal price to non-class members £30). This includes an hour’s tuition and then you will be able to either paint your pot on the day or have it fired for your next session. Once you become proficient using the wheel and don’t need the one to one tuition then you will be able to use this when you like during your class.
The studio has a wide selection of tools, gadgets and paints and glazes some of which have been designed and produced by Rachel herself. We have a fully stocked shop of brushes and tools so you can eventually have your own brushes and tools to work at home in between classes if you like.
You will also have the ability to book onto our exclusive workshops which will be going ahead throughout the year and we will let you know at the class once before we announce these on the website as they get booked up quickly.
We will also be having a clay day every last Sunday of the month for up to 4 people and you can book this for £100 for the day. This will allow you to make items on the wheel or roller and you will make up to 6 items which students often then paint over the weeks in their weekly class.
Should you want to book onto the Monday Classes please enrol from the 10th August 2020 onwards either online or by contacting Rachel on her mobile which is 07970793727.
You will then need to stipulate which 3-hour slot you would like to take.
We are hoping to have an open evening before the classes start and we will let you know once we have a date set.
We will also keep you informed of any workshop dates we organise once the studio is back up and running.
We are looking forward to the new opening of our lovely refurbished studio and hope you will be able to join us.
