New Year,  New…Mugs? 

This January instead of our usual self directed 'Clay Day' sessions we will be hosting a special 3 week guided course. 

Ideal for beginners, or those who have dabbled but would love to know more about the process of building and glazing ceramics! You will learn the fundamentals of pottery & be provided with all the material, equipment and guidance you need to make a set of mugs in you own design!

It will equip you with a great foundation of knowledge which you can take with you into the next year of Clay Day Fun!

The course takes place across three evening on the 17th, 24th, 31st January 6:30 - 9 pm at our Hackney Studio.

a perfect gift for yourself or a friend!

Week One : An introduction to using Clay safely and the basics of Pottery and what it will take to make your mugs! You will then begin the process of designing and making your mugs, through learning about slab work and and building

Week Two : This session you will refine your mugs, and learn about Smoothing and trimming to get a perfect finish. You can then add colour and pattern to your mugs with underglaze. 

Week Three : During the final session you will learn about the process (and sometimes trial and error) of glazing! This is the finishing touch to your mugs and means you will be able to use them to drink from. The second half of the session you are invited to start again all over again and use your new skills to make more pottery, which also gives you a taster of our weekly self directed 'Clay Day' sessions. 

After the final glaze firing you will be able to come and collect your mugs!

A perfect gift to a friend or yourself! 

From the 31st Jan onwards the usual clay day antics will resume!
