I am teaching ceramics at my workshop at Sheen Pottery, 4 sessions a week with 8 students in a session from beginners to experienced.
Teaching handbuilding techniques, pinching, coiling and slab bulding. Along the way I teach textures in clay, decorating with slip, resist and masking techniques, sgrafitto decoration, then glazing techniques and oxide decoration.
Then I teach throwing on the potters wheel although I have only 3 wheels so its not possible to go on the wheel every week, this seems to work out as not everyone want to throw.
Please check with Lindy for availability, classes are on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday evenings.
