Join this class to create your very own piece of joined artwork to delight your friends, family - or just yourself in achieving so many possibilities with a slab of clay and a mould to make two identical pieces joined and created into so many delights.

Over 3 hours, we'll show you how to hand build a gorgeous creation that you can adapt with your own personality. We can walk you through how to create a variety of shapes (there are SO many to choose from - take a look at the photo's) and adornments, all to create your very own unique piece.

You'll be working with 'slips', which are coloured clays, to decorate your pieces and you can also work with stencils and textures etc. etc.

This class is a maximum of 8 people, so you'll be assured of access to Jude's expertise over the duration of the 3 hour class.

You'll walk away with a salt pig, birdfeeder or nest, animal urn, pumpkin, jam server, vase, lidded container, soothing sphere, piggy banks, salt and pepper shakers etc. etc. whatever takes your fancy that can be formed from a sphere or egg shape.  If you are interested in achieving any of these, prior notice is required with a photograph of something similar so we can be prepared and or let you know if possible with the equipment available.  There are an enormous number of items that can be achieved from joining together two identical shapes 

Your creation will be glaze fired to 12020 * C  Stoneware and ready for collection a few weeks after your class - you'll be notified as soon as it's ready!

This is the ideal class to repeat over and over again, so many items that you can enjoy creating and painting.

Class Date:  Saturdays 22nd June, 17th August, 21st September 2024

Knowledge required

Some prior knowledge would be beneficial but not necessary as once you have learnt how to form a slab of clay using a mould you will be capable of making so many interesting projects as gifts for family and friends.

What you'll get

  • All tools, 1kg clay, coloured slip 'glaze', firing.
  • Tea and coffee - although Fonzie Abbot is just across the road for a barista-made caffeine hit!
  • Three hours of expert teaching and guidance from studio owner, Jude, who has been honing her craft and talent for the past four decades.
  • Students can pick up their finished pieces a few weeks (could be up to four weeks) after the class as we need to allow this time for the kiln to fill up and your pieces to be fired twice. Your pieces will be dishwasher, microwave, ovenproof and food safe.
