One-on-One Private Classes

Artisan Avenue offers one-on-one and bespoke classes. We can work with you on whatever skills you wish to expand or specific items you'd like to craft. Contact us directly to enquire about what technique you'd like to focus on. 

Group Private Classes

If there is an area in clay slab building that you would like to do some further training in, but don't particularly want to do a one-on-one class, you only need to rally together a minimum of 4 people (we can take up to 8 in a class), for us to put on a day class. It could be on any of the below topics, or anything else your imagination can think of. The only condition is that everyone in the group creates the same structure / item, which of course you'll each put your own personality in to with glazes, textures and decoration:
Teapots
Berry bowls
Yarn bowls
Fluting
Making moulds
Slip casting
Primitive pots
Mono-printing
Using stencils etc 

So if you're interested to learn more in a particular area that others may also be; let me know and we can work together to try to make that happen!
