'What I made during lockdown looks like shit compared to what I made in these workshops'
- A joke from a previous student who doesn't exist
*Welcome to my post-covid workshops! They run just as they always have with the addition of space around you, a cute mask when required and that vague background smell of hand sanitiser that we have all come to love. The studio also looks a little different now to accommodate spacing but it's still the same warm vibe.*
4 Week Wheel and Glaze WORKSHOP
These are my most popular workshop. They're 4 sessions of 2-hours weekly. They are perf if you've already had a few classes and you're ready to improve and broaden your skill base or if you're just beginning and want to get a taste of what's involved in the making process.
You'll be part of a small group of 5 to ensure each student gets some good one-on-one time and it's great if you've wanted to learn with mates.
The weeks will look like this:
Wedging and clay preparation
Throwing - The part where you do the pretty Instagram video thing. We'll be covering some basic forms like cylinders and cups, bowls, the whole shebang!
Turning - finishing your work and making sure everything is perfect for the first firing
Glazing - making your vessels pretty and unique
Booking is final and non-refundable. Classes usually book out quite quick and someone else might have potentially loved your spot, so it's important to make sure you get there - you can nominate a friend to come instead if you like! If a lockdown occurs the class will be postponed until restrictions ease.
You've got to have close toed-shoes in the studio
Wear something you can get dirty
Long nails can very easily damage your work and make it difficult to make anything, something to consider if you're about to get that SNS.
Covid safety measures are in place that means that you need to: BYO towel, masks when required.
According to health requirements, you'll be adequately spaced and tools and surfaces will be sanitised between sessions.
You'll need to sanitise your hands and sign in on entry
you WILL enjoy yourself
If you want to book as a gift please grab a gift card and ask the receiver to book rather than booking for them (I've found this to be a little more streamlined)
