As our lives get more frenetic, so we search for new ways to relax and spend quality time exploring our creativity. This is where clay can be the answer.
We are finding that most people who come to our studio are looking for a few hours where they can relax, just be themselves, meet new people and make beautiful things. Working with clay is therapeutic. Not only is the process enriching, taking home a beautiful hand-made piece is enormously gratifying. Pottery is for every age and every walk of life.
All levels of experience are welcome to attend classes and workshops. Beginners can look forward to exploring various clay forming techniques such as pinch pots, coil building, slab building and throwing on the wheel. Basics of clay and glaze composition will be discussed throughout the classes in a relaxed and informal manner. All aspects of the formation process will be explained so as to have a full understanding of the entire ceramic process. Students will be encouraged to draw inspiration for their work from their own personal accounts of the world around them. Once the student is comfortable with the medium, individual projects are encouraged that may be initiated by the student or teacher. Each student works at their own pace and individuality and originality are encouraged.
We offer classes on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday Mornings from 9h30 - 12h30 and on Thursday evenings from 15h00 - 21h00. You come to a 3 hour slot to suit you.
