The studio is housed in the 18th century barn overlooking the valley and the hills beyond, an inspiring environment for your creativity . We have four Shimpo wheels (left or right handers), glaze room and drying area (Tuscan sun), front and top loading kilns. There is a good range of hand tools, and plenty of space for hand building and finishing. All materials are supplied.
Workshops include developing a range of skills including throwing, slab construction and hand building. This will include creating functional items such as cups, bowls, pouring pots and jars to more complex and creative objects.
Simple pots can be built over a two day course. In a full week course participants will have the opportunity to develop a range of skills and can experiment with slip and inlay techniques, surface decoration, including raku firing.
Proficient potters who wish to use the studio on an hourly basis with minimal supervision are welcome.
