Due to increased interest, we've reorganised our downstairs space to accomodate one of our home studio potter's wheels.  This means we can now produce thrown work at The Clay House and more excitingly will soon be able to offer 1-1 and 2-1 throwing tuition.  These will be offered in 2-hourly sessions, initially on one day a week until we gauge interest.  First come first serve.

Thursday 13th February (6 places remaining)
Heart bowls
10am - 1pm        £50pp or 2 for £90

Just in time for Valentines Day, we'll be making heart shaped bowls which could be used for your loved one's morning cereal or keep it for yourself and grow your favourite bulbs in it.  Two sizes available.

(FULL) Thursday 12th March
Sculpture
10am - 3.30pm         £90pp   Don't forget a packed lunch

This is our popular full day workshop which is a little bit more of a challenge.  Participants have the opportunity to produce a sculpture, be it figurative, decorative or abstract, of their own choice.  You will need to bring some ideas and images with you and we will help you to create your design in 3-d.

**New date** Thursday 23rd April (3 places remaining)
Slab vase
10am - 1pm        £50pp or 2 for £90

Display your Spring blooms in your own handmade slab vase.  'Slab' refers to the process we will use, which is basically rolled out flat pieces of clay or 'slabs', which you can add texture and pattern to.  The pieces are then constructed together to form a vessel. Templates for shown design will be provided.

(5 places remaining) Thursday 14th May
Green Man plaque
10am -1pm         £50pp or 2 for £90

Create your own unique take on the Green Man to display in your outdoor space.  Primarily interpreted as a symbol of rebirth, representing the cycle of growth for Spring, the Green Man is usually a face surrounded by or made from leaves.  Your design can be as intricate or simple as you are comfortable with but there will be lots of support in creating him.

Images are examples from Pinterest.

Sunday 14th June (6 places remaining)
Jewellery
10am - 1pm        £50pp or 2 for £90

You may need your glasses for this workshop as it could prove to be fiddly, working with small pieces.  We are planning to make brooches, pendants and earrings.  Feel free to bring your own designs.  Fittings will be supplied.

We cannot be held responsible if you do not turn up for the workshop or course due to forgetfulness. Please write the date and times in your diary once booking is confirmed.  Terms and conditions apply and must be acknowledged when booking onto the course.  Contact us for further information.

 

Gift vouchers available

for all workshops,  evening courses and to spend in our shop at Cedar Farm.

Makes an unique and memorable gift.

Contact us for more information or enquiries.

All our workshops are held upstairs in the studio at The Clay House. The stairs are a little steep so please take this into account when considering booking. We can only accomodate up to 6 participates due to physical space.  Unfortunately there is no wheelchair access up to the studio. 

 

It is a very informal setting so please don't be intimidated if you are a total beginner and are planning to come on your own.  We provide you with plenty of tea and biscuits on hand to keep your creativity fuelled.

Thank you for your interest in The Clay House workshops and course.

Regards

Victoria & Cheryl
